Re: ACLparse: variables replacment (ITS#2794)

Suggest you just use your favorite macro processor (cpp, m4,
whatever) to do such substitutions.  

Adding built-in preprocessor support to slapd.conf(5) handling
would be problematic since there are many programs, most not
maintained by the project, which parse slapd.conf(5) files.
