Testing inclusion of comments in LDIF files (ITS#2054)

Nothing is broken, it is just an enhancement request for the tests provided
with the source code distribution.

Some time ago, with the 2.0.x series of OpenLDAP, I had problems with slapadd
just wouldn't accept comments in the LDIF files that it was being fed with.

Even if the 2.1.x series hasn't got this problem anymore, there is no guaranty 
that it will not happen again since there is no test to check about a regression

in this area.

In the source code distribution there is this LDIF content :

So it would be good to add comments before each entry :

  # Definition of the root of the directory
  dn: o=University of Michigan,c=US

  # Definition of an organizationalUnit
  dn: ou=People,o=University of Michigan,c=US


As you see, this request is very easy to implement :-)
