That's what I understood also, hence my lack of motivation to consider
it as a viable implementation of collective attributes for openldap 2.3

Although written as a demonstration of overlay code, and thus perhaps probably not as optimal as it could be, it doesn't differ from the rest of the overlays; I think right now the only way one would implement collective attributes would probably be by means of an overlay, and its architecture wouldn't probably differ too much from that of current slapo-collect. If you're fine with, say, slapo-accesslog, slapo-chain, slapo-dynlist, slapo-rwm, slapo-syncprov, most of which implement key features of OpenLDAP, I don't see why you shouldn't give slapo-collect the same respect. All in all, it's out of usefulness for regular users that OpenLDAP experimental code becomes release-grade code. Or, to reverse the point of view, please feel free to consider the rest of OpenLDAP code the same you consider slapo-collect.

I like that last sentence!

I was going to say it didn't have cn=config support, but Howard added that a while ago.
