389-DS has more features and there are more and more tools requiring
389-DS and not working with openldap.

firewalld: sometimes you have to throw away very old code and replace
it with something newer, more maintainable. And SuSEfirewall2 is pretty
old and has design limitations hurting a lot today, which are not fixable
without a complete re-design. The world is continuing changing.
