Hm, the idea was to create that mapping only when there is no existing 
configuration (no slapd.conf and nothing in slapd.d). That means just 
for bootstrapping a new server. With this there would be no need to 
have an initial slapd.conf any more. It of course only make sense to 
add the mapping when slapd is really listening on ldapi.
