Thanks for the info.  Someone might want to update the admin doc.  From
section - Mirror Mode Configuration - "This is the same as the
Set up the provider slapd section, reference delta-syncrepl replication
if using delta-syncrepl."

We're now thinking some of our issues may be attributable to time
granularity issues.  We're seeing missing information on the consumer if
multiple successive writes are attempted via a script.  If we slow down
to human speed or insert sleeps in our test code, this gets a little
better.  I see that A.2.4 N-Way MultiMaster Replication notes that
entryCSNs now record with microseconds, but does this apply to mirrors
as well?  Can I setup a two node N-Way?  Can anyone provide config
examples using slapd.conf syntax instead of the cn=config in the admin doc?

Also, though the Syncrepl Details section does provide what it says,
could anyone offer a high level overview of the synchonization process? 
Something like a trace of operations from an initial modification on one
server through the propagation to consumers (server 1 gets write request
-> updates index -> writes to session log, etc. etc.etc.).
