(ITS#4440) Feature Request: Addition to the "limits" command, "idle" that allows you to override the default idletimeout

A lot of the slapd.conf limitation settings allow you to override them using the
"limits" command.

For example, I can allow particular dn's or groups to have an unlimited
sizelimit even if my default sizelimit is 500, or they can have unlimited time
to perform searches.  However, there does not seem to be a way to override the
idletimeout setting for particular dns/groups.  

Having this capability would be very useful (I want to allow some particular
clients to have persistent connections without having to rebind every 30

I envision something like:

limits dn.exact="cn=blah,dc=stanford,dc=edu" time.soft=unlimited
time.hard=unlimited size.soft=unlimited size.hard=unlimited idle.soft=unlimited

(if it makes sense to have both a hard and soft limit on idle)
