In fact it is not implemented in back-ldap, but in the frontend of
OpenLDAP, at the same level than reading schema files. So it can be used
not only for back-ldap and back-meta but for other backends too (for
example to synchronize the schema of slave directories with the schema
of the master).
In any case, you can find it in ITS#3429.
