This should do the trick: <http://www.sys-net.it/~ando/Download/nsdn.c>.

With respect to making sure the parent's DN and the parent portion of an
entry's DN exactly match, I think we need to intercept add operations to
enforce that.  Or, in general, this change could be beneficial to slapd:
since we're checking for the existence of the parent anyway, we could
rebuild the entry's DN using the normal/pretty RDN and the parent's DN.
