OK - forget the link to cn=config - that is just what got me interested
in ldapi: to start with.
The ldapi: transport seems to be almost undocumented. There is a brief
(but useful) mention in ldap.conf(5) but very little elsewhere.
I have found enough hints in the archives to get started, so I will file
Everything worth noting about ldapi: was already published as an IETF
Informational Draft, and I've already posted the link to that document several
times. Beyond that it's no different from any other LDAP URL.
