OK, then in this case the rdnNormalize/rdnPretty
are simply extracting the last (leftmost) rdn; I
guess you're still working on extracting other

Another (possibly separated) issue: nameAndOptionalUID,
which is used in uniqueMember, is composed of a DN plus
an optional UID.  I wonder if the rdnMatch should apply
to the DN portion of nameAndOptionalUID as well and, in
the case, what actions should be taken (mrd_compat_syntaxes
field in struct slap_mrule_defs_rec?  How, and where,
to strip the optional UID to use existing DN/RDN parsing

Ciao, p.
