"slapmod": off-line tool for editing database entries?


Has anyone given any thought to the development of a 'slapmod' tool that
would allow an admin to not only add objects to a database when slapd is
down, but also to edit objects?  In working with the maintainers of
Debian's OpenLDAP packages to provide a smooth transition from OpenLDAP
2.0 to 2.1, it's come to my attention that there are times where it
would be useful to be able to make such modifications when the directory
server is off-line -- indeed, a directory server might be off-line
*because* it needs to be changed to conform to newer schema
restrictions.  While slapcat+slapadd would certainly do the trick, this
seems a bit heavy for what's really needed.  Any takers, or other
