Got this bug while playing with recursive group <who> 

It works very fine, but it is somehow intrusive because
I had to add an argument to the backend_group call and to
each backend group function. The need for this sort of
access emerged from discussions on the list. 

Recalling the access syntax:
	access to <what> [ by <who> <access> [ <control> ] ]+

the group <who> clause


allows access if the requesting dn (op_ndn) is listed
in the members (<attrname>) of a group objectclass 
(<objectclass>) whose dn matches the <pattern> (as defined
by <style>).

In case an appropriate flag is set, I made this check continue,
in case of failure, by recursively searching the requesting dn 
(op_ndn) in the group objectclasses represented by the members
of the initial objectclass that matches <pattern>.

Although dangerous (no loop check) and heavy, it may be useful.

If there's no objections I'll commit the whole stuff.
