Furthermore, it __should__ be more efficient to use back-relay + slapo-rwm
for the purpose of binding to a local database with a virtual naming

I'd love to move this to back-relay and not have the network involved, but I don't see how to do "translucent with back-relay" behavior without quite a few rewriteRules (and even then I'm not sure it would work).

I mean, take the test034 "remote" example, essentially

database        bdb
suffix          "o=translucent"
overlay         translucent
uri             ldap://localhost:9011/

obviously making a superset of o=translucent on 9012 (relative to original
o=translucent 9011).

Say I wanted a translucent on the :9011 server in slapd.1.conf. I'll
concede to "suffix o=translucent_new" being required (:9011 can't serve
two different o=translucent). How would I specify:

database bdb
suffix "o=translucent_new"
overlay translucent
relay "o=translucent"

is that actually valid?
No, the translucent overlay only uses back-ldap. I guess it would be possible to extend it for use with other backend types; you could easily get into some nonsensical situations that way...
