Background: As you might guessed I'm again experimenting to ease writing to
back-config with web2ldap (with updated LDIF and HTML templates). After
successfully adding an entry a link is shown by web2ldap to the new entry
which obviously contains the DN. But due to the X-ORDERED stuff usability is
bad since the DN is wrong in most cases. I've already added support for the
post read control to web2ldap...
