Yes: inspect


it's a string containing the name of the original backend type.

Yes: cook an Operation structure with data appropriate for a

	BackendDB db = *op->o_bd;
	Operation op2 = *op;
	SlapReply rs2;

	op2.o_bd = &db;
		= ((slap_overinst*)op->o_bd->bd_info)->on_info->oi_orig

and call

	op2.o_bd->be_add( &op2, &rs2 );

There's plenty of examples in overlays released with OpenLDAP software.
