Evening all,

Are OID Macros specific to slapd?

They're a feature of X.500 that was lost in the translation to LDAP. I implemented them for OpenLDAP and as far as I know they're unique to OpenLDAP. I messed with them a bit; in X.500 specs they still just use dots as separators but I found that too ambiguous for parsing, so I used colons.
