I started trying to integrate the Heimdal ASN.1 compiler with OpenLDAP and then noticed
that the compiler does not support the ASN.1 GSER or BER encoding rules. Presumably it
could be made to support these rules but this would be some work.
Another option would be to use the continuation of the eSNACC compiler which can be found

I am not familiar with kqueue.
Sure, no worries. :)
Is Howard suggesting that we rip the ASN.1 compiler out of Heimdal
integrate it with Openldap? Would we want to put it in a separate git
My reading of it is indeed, the idea is to completely remove the existing
ASN.1 compiler, and to pull in the one from Heimdal instead.
The code in question is located at contrib/slapd-modules/comp_match. I imagine you could
store the Heimdal ASN.1 compiler in a subdirectory there, similar to how nss-pam-ldapd is
available in contrib/slapd-modules/nssov/nss-pam-ldapd.
