There are three options between back-ldap, back-meta, and

idle-timeout -> The man page says takes an integer, but is defined as a
string. However, I think the man page for this parameter is incorrect, and in
fact it takes a possible string as defined in the back-meta/async manual pages
for this same parameter. (I.e, it can have a format of something like 1d15h5s)
I don't see this. The man page says "<time>". It looks correct to me.
For back-ldap, back-meta, and back-asyncmeta:
network-timeout -> This takes an integer, but is defined as a string. The
back-ldap, back-meta, and back-asyncmeta man pages says it uses the same
format as idle-timeout, but the function that parses the value does not agree
with assertion. It appears to take only accept an integer.
Looks to me like it uses lutil_parse_time, same as idle-timeout.
But in back-meta network-timeout is displayed as an integer, while
idle-timeout uses lutil_unparse_time. network-timeout probably should be using
unparse_time as well.
For back-meta and back-asyncmeta:
bind-timeout -> This is clearly described in the man page as a taking an
integer value, but it is defined as a string. Any objection to me changing it
to be an integer type?
I guess that's OK.
