(ITS#3593) Contrib: addpartial overlay

Submission from: (NULL) (

This is an OpenLDAP overlay that intercepts ADD requests, determines if a change
has actually taken place for that record, and then performs a modify request for
those values that have changed (modified, added, deleted).  If the record has
not changed in any way, it is ignored.  If the record does not exist, the record
falls through to the normal add mechanism.  This overlay is useful for
replicating from sources that are not LDAPs where it is easier to build entire
records than to determine the changes (i.e. a database).

I am submitting this in the hope that someone will find this overlay useful. 
Any and all comments welcome.

Thank you,
