Hmm - I was thinking of matching on the *modified
attributes* (just their presence, not taking account of
value). However, I can see that pre- and post-conditions
might matter so:

logrecord <operations> prefilter|changefilter|postfilter <LDAP URL>
logignore <operations> prefilter|changefilter|postfilter <LDAP URL>

Both if present. Again, I might restrict the filter to
matching on the presence of attributes in the filter rather
than their actual value.

Whatever works for search should be very close.
