Re: (ITS#5497) back-sql with base64 encoded attributes

This is an imperfection of back-sql. It doesn't exist any way how to say 
to slapd, which attributes are base64 encoded.

Here are configuration files, that I am using. Look at "cn", "sn" 
attributes in "usi.sql" especialy.
advanced schemas:

SQL scripts

It doesn't matter, no LDIF file is imported to back-sql. Record are 
inserted into MySQL (4 metadata tables).
