Dropping slurpd, manage/Relax control

One feature that's still needed in some cases (e.g., using syncrepl to push updates to another slave thru back-ldap) is an updatedn identity with the privilege to write to unmodifiable operational attributes.

I guess this isn't something the Relax control is intended to allow. We can keep using the updatedn but it feels like this is something that should be generalized. E.g. one might want to have a cluster of servers sending updates to each other, with a unique identity for each server, and all of them with privilege to write to operational attributes. I think the updatedn feature captures the idea ("this identity is a DSA") but it just needs to be more flexibly configured.
