Re: (ITS#3613) globbing support for slapd config's include statement

The patch doesn't qualify for direct inclusion, although it may be of 
interest.  2.2 is feature frozen, so you should rearrange it for HEAD.  
However, HEAD is undergoing major redesign in this area; see discussion 
about back-config and modifications via LDAP protocol.  File inclusion 
has been recently discussed a bit on the -devel mailing list, so fitting 
this feature into its design might not be as trivial as you expect.
