I'm not sure what exactly the problem is, if any:-)  Syncrepl itself
needs to handle databases that are not that nice: We can't require
that of back-perl, nor back-ldap which accesses a non-OpenLDAP server
(if that makes any sense).  And syncrepl + rwm, maybe?  Also syncrepl
is an RFC (4533) so it should handle non-OpenLDAP peers.

Still, if it keeps OpenLDAP-on-OpenLDAP clean, that's a plus.
Unless we want back-ldif to be different just to test that syncrepl
handles different backends.  Might also make a test which replicates
between different backends - e.g. $BACKEND and back-ldif.
