limits command does not support groups (ITS#2967)

I found in my testing of the "limits" command, that I cannot specify that a
group to which to assign limits to.  I.e., we have
"cn=ldapadmin,cn=applications,dc=stanford,dc=edu".  When I connect to a server,
and bind as myself "cn=quanah,cn=accounts,dc=stanford,dc=edu", my privileges
(read, etc) are enhanced because I'm in the ldapadmin group.  It would be most
helpful if that were possible to do with the "limits" command as well. 
Otherwise, I have to specify each member of the ldapadmin group in a "limits"
line in slapd.conf -- Essentially defeating the purpose of having groups.
