Note perlModuleConfig, break in compatibility with older versions

Why?  This sounds like it will break existing back-perl installations
slightly, but maybe not so thoroughly that the admin realizes why
his back-perl now misbehaves.

Since 2.4 slapd dies on unknown config directives, they won't get very far before it becomes obvious what needs to be fixed.

If we are going to redesign the interface, it might be better do
do it more thorougly.  E.g. might to let
	backend perl
	perl-load foo
load foo.pm which defines backend foo, usable with 'database foo'.
