also missing your SOB (sign-off).

side note: our webmailer is currently a bit broken on reply, i.e., it omits the
In-Reply-to header which in turn breaks threading for all with a sensible MUA.
Thus I'd appreciate it greatly if you'd use another MTA/MUA that avoids such
issues for now, e.g., thunderbird or claws if you prefer graphical or (neo)mutt
or aerc if you prefer terminal based ones. On the long run keeping up with our
and other opensource's projects development lists via webmail alone may get
cumbersome fast anyway ;-)

I mean, I can see that from the commit diff, so not really adding much here

that is good info though, maybe add that commas in LDAP paths require
escaping and so we explicitly allow for a escaped comma only.

abobe again a bit redundant with the diff.

nit: we do not really use () for quoted regex operator, I'd rather prefer one
of qr// qr!! or qr@@ which all have some use in our code base, IIRC.

Further, this disallows now some values including a \ that where ok previous,
is that intended or what's the idea here? The commit message does not talks about
it.
