For now all the commands to the various DBMS are blocking
(synchronous) and so I suggest that you use synchronous methods; the
idea is that to make things asychronous, commands will be run by
libgda in their own thread (that is for later).

I prefer to keep the dependencies as small as possible and openldap is
very easy to install and has very few dependencies itself. I don't
know about the mozilla SDK but it seems to require more dependencies.
With that in mind, I leave the choice up to you.

Not much as we have nice and smart firewall rules at work which
prevent me from doing just that. However I can do gmail chat if you
can (I have some gmail account invitations if you want one). At home I
generally don't have much time and we'd have to fix a meeting date
