Why is this problematic? Server side sorting is a horrible waste of server
CPU that's better served by the client doing sorting how it wants.
well ... i think this feature could be very usefull in certain cases.
Imagine I just want to know what's the max uidNumber used in my directory.
actually, i ask the server to give all the uidNumbers and my client sort
them. isn't it an horrible waste of bandwidth ?
