This is an enhancement request:

When having a distributed LDAP structure with a master and several SyncRepl
clients, the clients can do the SyncRepl only on fixed refresh intervals (e.g.

However, there are many situations where this is inappropriate, e.g. on dial-on
connections, roaming notebooks, and things like that.

Therefore, slapd should have a client mode where the SyncRepl process is
performed only on request, but then immediately. There should be an external
trigger to pull, e.g. send a signal oder do a special LDAP request. slapd should
then start a SyncRepl.

E.g. this could be put in scripts run at connect-time (pppd provides that kind
of scripting), or when notebook autoconfiguration detects (e.g. with tools like
guessnet) that it is connected to the home network to update it's local slapd.
