The only reason I kept that is that we use ldap_explode_dn(), that
function is not itself deprecated (ie it is not under LDAP_DEPRECATED
ifdefs although a comment syas it is deprecated), but it returns char
**, and the only function that frees a char ** is ldap_free_value().
This one is under LDAP_DEPRECATED and says you shoud use
ldap_free_value_len(), but that functions takes a struct berval as

I think there are only 2 places/plugins where those deprecated
functions are used. So if you want to open a ticket to remove them feel
free, but I would do that as a separate patch.
The goal of this patch was to do as few modifications as possible to
the plugins themselves.
