2.3 (and 2.4) client tools only send the password policy control with the Bind
requests.  However, the control is not only valid with most every request, but
useful to send with every request.   HEAD has been updated to send, when -e
ppolicy is selected, the control with every request, and to print the control
details on return.  While this could be viewed as a new feature by some it could
abe viewed as a bug fix by others.   Given this change scope is quite narrow
(should only effect -e ppolicy users), I recommend it inclusion in the next
patch release of 2.3.
