That's the format from when CSNs were introduced in OpenLDAP 2.1.

It seems a bit odd to be introducing support for that format now in 2.4, when
it was completely unsupported in 2.2 and 2.3. I.e., why wasn't this issue
raised during the migration to/thru either 2.2 or 2.3?
I'm inclined to reject this patch; you can fix it in LDIF using sed or perl
and never have to think about it again.
