Re: v2.2.24 structural object class modification not allowed

Is everyone failing to remember that in OpenLDAP 2.0.27 this was *NOT* enforced? But that was ok? Now it's not? I fail to understand the double standard. Or did the X.500 spec change and that is now why OpenLDAP 2.2.24 enforces it?

Althogh it would be violation of the standard, it might be usefull feature in slapd to have run time option to allow addition/removals of structural object classes. Default, of course should be to be standard conformant and not allow such changes. The option would allow LDAP administrator to restructure his objects (if/when needed) without the need to dump/reload all entries in database.
