OpenLDAP isn't recognizing IA5String

It's just following the LDAP standard.  But why the standard only
defines descriptions and not names for syntax OIDs I don't know.

Definitely a mystery, especially since X.500 allowed names...

But you can always use the objectidentifier keyword in slapd.conf to
handle this. See slapd.conf(5).

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

Feel free to submit it...

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.

Right. We had a specific policy not to use names in the distributed schema files, since they don't appear in the original specs.

 (Maybe we chould define a
'localinclude' directive which would include the file, but undo the
resulting definitions at the end of the including file:-)

Ugh... At this point, I don't want to see anything else that can complicate things further in config. back-config is already taking enough time as it is...
