I'm hitting an issue like this in some of the replication tests I'm
currently performing. For this purpose, I think we could hack
ldapsearch (or add a new prog, or use a script on ldapsearch output)
that sorts entries content attribute-wise and, within each attribute,
value-wise. Something like "sort" applied entry-wise after unwrapping
line folding, optionally case-insensitive would probably suffice.
Well, if it were distributable, and written in a widely supported
scripting language, it would be quite useful...
What do you consider a "widely supported scripting language"?
During some discussions about the test suite I felt that having a more
powerful scripting language would help dealing with some of the problems
in a more elegant way.
