draft-ietf-ldapext-psearch is not supported in OpenLDAP. This standard has
serious deficiencies anyway making it almost unusable. I know what I'm talking
about since I have to use that with eDirectory in a customer project.

This mentions syncrepl (see RFC 4533) as noted in this blog entry.
The funny thing is that the way SyncRepl is implemented, it uses a
mechanism which is a persistentSearch for the RefreshAndPersist mode.
What kind of deficiencies have you found that make the original PSearch
spec unusable ?
What would be needed to use the same mechanism than in Syncrepl to get
it working ?
