perl probably. I don't need detailed ldif parsing however, and i'm
afraid using LDAP::LDIF will cost me much performance.

slapadd does str2entry(), just as slapcat dies entry2str(). They may
be usable, but it's overkill as well.

Probably the easiest way is to run the stream through a custom
program that replaces newline-space by nothing. That's not the
prettiest way, however.
