Although I find the idea of the new syncrepl process appealing, I have stumbled
across an issue when using GSSAPI

There is no syntax, when using GSSAPI as my mech, for signifying what keytab
and/or ticket that the new replication process should use.  We use a specific
service keytab for this purpose (service/ldap@stanford.edu).  If I cannot
indicate a ticket to use (like I currently do for slurpd via the KRB5CCNAME
environment variable), then OpenLDAP needs to be able to take a keytab, get a
ticket, use that ticket, and make sure it doesn't expire.  I suggest the former,
it is simpler.
