Agreed, OID-based controls for client-side library behavior seems rather
unwieldy. I would agree though, that per-request control of library behavior
is a good thing. The C API still has no ldap_search() parameter for alias
deref behavior. It's a bit ridiculous that it's a library-level option, since
the option only has relevance to search requests.
