patches authors would like included in OpenLDAP Software until they have been

While the ITS submission provides for a review of what was done, my purpose in
directing the conversation here is to discuss why. It's not clear to me that
this old draft is still viable or desirable. As we've talked about many times
before, the C API is a huge mess and we need to toss the current one out and
go back to the drawing board, preferably to come up with a new API that
doesn't meld operational behavior (e.g. referral chasing) with the low level
protocol implementation, and one that is largely free-threaded.
