Re: what if we move SLAPI to a (global) overlay?

Sure. At present, I'm simply in the stage of checking whether this can be done or not. As I already pointed out, I had to anticipate part of the consistency checks that are run on writes in slap_mods_check() to provide mods data in a safe state to global overlays. This causes current SLAPI code to be called __after__ the checks, while it use dto be called __before__. I suggest you check that this doesn't break existing slapi modules. I think this is necessary, otherwise we will need to specialize overlays to be used as global rather than database specific.
