The same goes for all of this discussion.  The cn=config attribute
names use neither '-' nor '_'.

In any case, deprecating slapd.conf looks to be years in the future to
me.  It's much easier to read and write (correctly:-) than cn=config,
and so are things like replacing an included schema version.  Though
you could take slapd.conf support out of slapd right now and instead
make a separate slapconf tool which translates it to cn=config.
