Feature request: ldapadd/slapadd and utf-8 (ITS#2818)

This is a feature request.

Nowadays, when encountering accented characters, ldapadd/slapadd exit with an
error. These entries should be in UTF-8 format, and base64 encoded.

It would be much easier for the user if such entries were automatically
detected, converted to UTF-8 and base64 encoded instead of expecting the user to
perform these steps.

I don't know if this feature request breaks any standard, though, or something
else. I hope not.
