Re: back-config again

One step towards making the slapd configuration easily presentable in LDAP is to use LDIF for the config file format. There will be a cn=config backend implicitly defined, and everything will branch out underneat this.

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.
