Yes, I wanted n-way.

Anybody looking for the translations between the replication.html docs and cn=config could possibly read 'man slapd.conf' and 'man slapd-config'. For instance the syncrepl and olcSyncrepl syntaxes look remarkably similar, and the olcOverlayConfig objectclass might be helpful for individual overlays. Not that I've tried anything other than n-way.
