code cleanup of LDAP autocomplete pref js
there is some autocomplete pref js that is doing stuff that the back end code
spefically, we have js to enumerate all ldap servers, for dynamically
determining the unique "prefname", for poking the prefs when adding or
deleting or modifying ldap servers.
instead, we should be using the existing nsIAddressBook interface, to which we
need to add a modify()

one more bug, #125823 (add modify() to nsIAddressBook.idl and use it.)
there's a lot of code to clean up, we shouldn't be writing or reading from
I don't think we need to re-write all the code before 0.9.9 or 1.0, but we
should start with the code that writes prefs, and later fix the does the
the reason we need to fix the write-pref code first, is that it poking prefs
directly causes bugs that the user can see.
