I think if the client library could return NULL instead of a malloc'ed "" we
would save a lot of useless memory allocation and fragmentation, and have a much
cleaner interface and save lots of checks and frees in slapd, mainly in
back-ldap/meta and syncrepl.
See also the discussion in openldap-commit.
I'd commit this to HEAD, since it's protected behind an #ifdef that's only
defined #ifdef LDAP_DEVEL.
