This is how I implemented it ...

... then I realized on my own that the check for rootdn 
is backend specific, as each operation is performed by
op->o_ndn, which ought to be the same as conn->c_ndn
but may belong to another backend :( I need to go back 
and study a cookie based on o_ndn and backend.  But then
it might be not worth replacing a strcmp now and then ...
