^^^ the "+" operator is in 2.3 only, as stated in the FAQ

Not that I know.  Patches are welcome (hint: use an internal search with
"this" as base and "one" as scope; search for DN only, i.e. "1.1" as
requested attribute; use the rootDN as identity for the internal search,
as it is performed to determine access rights and, as such, might incur in
an endless loop).
