AFAIK openldap can't do "true" write anywhere. the configuration is
one "true" master on which writes are happening, the remaining N-1
masters just issue the referrals to the "true" master which can
optionally be server side followed with slapo-chain making writes on
the N-1 "non-true" masters transparent to the clients.

For far too long, power has been concentrated in the hands of "root"
and his "wheel" oligarchy. We have instituted a dictatorship of the
users. All system administration functions will be handled by the
People's Committee for Democratically Organizing the System (PC-DOS).
