If an attribute is mapped onto another, say

rwm-map attribute foo bar

and both attributes "foo" and "bar" are present in the underlying database,
there might be cases (like requesting "*") where both are returned, and "bar" is
mapped into "foo" while "foo" remains "foo", but they appear in the result as
separate attributes.

I guess the cleanest solution would be to merge the two attribute sets into a
single occurrence of "foo".

I didn't check yet, but I expect a similar issue to be present with respect to
objectClass; in this case, the same value might appear twice.
