Good; making progress, then, aren't we?

You mean

dn: cn=Foo,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: modrdn
newrdn: cn=Foo
deleteoldrdn: 1

I note this is not directly related to slapo-memberof(5), but rather
handled by the underlying backend.  RFC 4511 states that a modify DN
operation must fail with the entryAlreadyExists result code if there was
already an entry with that name.  However, a broad interpretation would
recognize that such a modify DN operation is going to be a no-op and
simply ignore it.  The specific case doesn't seem to be explicitly dealt
with in RFC 4511.
