I know it beats the object of being able to make runtime changes to
cn=config, but with lack of readable documentation, and the fact that I'm
in test mode only, trying to learn OpenLDAP, this is the way I do it.

Great idea, so let's try to manage it like that...
But my critism on the whole thing is, that -it seems- the new config system is
cn=config, and it is so poor documented. There are so less howtos and other
stuff in the web using cn=config.

So you're unable to read slapd-config(5)? Or the Admin Guide?

When a (hypothetical) document says:
  "digits" are characters in the range 0-9, e.g. '5'
do you really need a HowTo spelling out the rest of the possible values?

One of my problems are to get the replication (n-way multi master with sasl
and kerberos auth) working with the new configuration system, but I found
none else having a configuration like mine.
