I concur.  Currently, the only advantage of using that patch would be the
possibility to use the "subschemaSubentry" and, with more work, the
"hasSubordinates" attributes in the filter, which seems to add no value to
slapcat.  Maybe we can just keep the patch handy in the Contrib ITS in cas
it gets more useful in the future.
