I would like to be able to add a DN even if it is only a SuffixAlias:

# sample slapd.conf:
suffix "o=mediaways.net"
suffixAlias "o=mediaways,c=de" "ou=mediaways,o=mediaways.net"

# sample LDIF
dn: uid=test,o=mediaways,c=de
chgangetype: add
[ ... ]

Doing an ADD using above LDIF schould succeed, rewriting/aliasing the DN to

I need this to be compatible with all Applications while moving our LDAP
Tree to the new suffix, this whould help a lot with the migration
