What is the current state of play wrt the compile flags LDAP_SCHEMA_ALLOW_ALL et al.? I see some contradictory messages on the mailing list archives.

I'm particularly interested in allowing non-numeric OIDs in schema definitions -- not because I think it's a good idea, but because I need to import a schema originally created on an iPlanet server, which uses alphanumeric names for OIDs rather than dotted-decimal numbers.

slapd requires all schema elements to have numeric OIDs. It does allow the use of alphanumeric macro names in certain places, but those names must be resolvable to a numeric OID (see the "objectidentifier" ketword in slapd.conf(5)).
