Currently, slap_tool_entry_check() sets "manage" to 0 when calling
entry_schema_check(); setting it to !0 would allow loading of OBSOLETE
objectClasses. Maybe "manage" should be passed to
slap_tool_entry_check(), and write tools (slapadd, slapmodify) could have
an explicit '-o manage' option to enable handling of these cases.
