Considering that Kurt wrote the internet draft that defines how referrals
are handled, I guess I'll have to go with Kurt's understanding of such.

The case I was thinking of that actually applies is when the user filter
specifies "objectclass=*" (objectclass present) in which case the hardcoded
test for objectclass=referral is unnecessary.
