Let me state first that right now I believe sets do not belong to
slapd(8); they should rather move into a module, under the dynacl
umbrella.  And, as such, they should be documented separately from
slapd.access(5), mostly because having them in slapd.access(5) would sort
of encourage unexperienced people into (ab-)using them.

Also, I'd like sets' users to document them (especially in terms of useful
hints, scenarios, case studies and so), as they probably best know what
one can gain from their use.  Otherwise, a bare description of the syntax,
although necessary, would hardly be useful to most of the users.
