This is not a good idea...  In LDAPv2, clients should be configured
with the appropriate base DN (which may or may not be the suffix
of any database).  With clients shipped with OpenLDAP, you may
use ldap.conf(5).  Other clients *should* have other mechanisms.
If you find one that doesn't, complain to the supplier of that
client (after making sure you are running their latest version).
