Re: back-config again

One step towards making the slapd configuration easily presentable in LDAP is

This is exactly the approach another big LDAP server vendor took. I hope
there aren't any IPR issues with this... :-/
Anyway I really like the idea reading the config from a LDIF backend. This
gives the server admin the possibility to change the config via LDAP or via
manually editing or automagically generating the LDIF file. It also makes
config backup and bootstrapping, as Howard already wrote, easy.
