Good idea.  I suggest we create slapd/schema/syntaxes.schema
which defines names for the supported syntaxes.

I'm not sure it would be a good idea to include this in the other schema
files distribued with OpenLDAP, though.  It could crash with someone
else's definitions of the same names.  (Maybe we chould define a
'localinclude' directive which would include the file, but undo the
resulting definitions at the end of the including file:-)
