Thanks for the contribution.  I gave a look at it, and seems to be fine,
although I need to check something with X.509.  I wonder if and how much
you tested it, since while playing with it I found what I believe is a
severe issue in lutil_str2bin(), which is used also in your code... (see
ITS#5699).  I also have a concern with respect to the IPR declaration on
top of your patch, though.  You state:

It sounds like you are authorizing Giovanni Schmid, project manager at 
ICAR, to release your work, or something like that?  I think you should 
clarify it a little bit.  In any case, I'd leave all issues about IPR to 
the OpenLDAP foundation; as soon as it's clarified, I'll commit your 
patch (with some modifications).
