First, see http://www.openldap.org/lists/openldap-devel/200007/msg00080.html
for a brief description of key routines.

Second, we'll have to sort out how to "attach" the rule to specific
attribute types.  I was thinking of doing this by associating
an (optional) approx rule with each equality rule.  Then
when the attribute specified use of the equality rule, it would
automatically pick up the associated approx rule.  I'll see if
I can find time to fix up the framework to support such.
