The access statement above is equivalent to:
        access to dn.subtree="dc=br"
                by dn.base="uid=houseAdmin,ou=house,dc=br" write

That is, the subsequent statements assign either "write" or
"none" (implicit).

It is pointless to use "continue" when the remaining clauses
assign rights (as opposed to increment rights).  See
http://www.openldap.org/faq/index.cgi?file=454 for a example
point-full use.
