'search' means you can apply a 'search' filter to it, 'read'
says search can return it to the client.

For example:
	access attr=givenName
		by * search

means that you can execute '(givenName=foo)' but that the
givenName attribute will not be returned as you don't have read

Search has NOTHING to do with bind.  In OpenLDAP 1.x, no access
controls affect bind.
