Right, the loglevel is a global variable.  And that doesn't look
like it could be easily changed either, since much of the logging

No, what slapd.conf(5) calls a "backend definition" a bit earlier is
a section of slapd.conf starting with "backend <foo>".  And what it
means is apparently either that or a "database <foo>" section, at
least in the case of "sizelimit" and "access" statements.  Could use
some clarification, I'll file a documentation ITS for it.
