Does back-config support the Post Read Control? That would be handy for
retrieving the renumbered DN after an Add or Modify request.

Hmm, experiments shows that this does work. Server returns:

"Critical extension is unavailable: critical control unavailable in

As far as I remember, back-ldif is relatively poor in terms of non-core
functionalities it supports, as it has never been intended for actual
stuff storage with the only notable exception of back-config.

I think, due to the extra processing back-config does on top, it wouldn't
matter if back-ldif supported it or not, it would still need to be explicitly
added to back-config.

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...

Time permitting, I think adding support for assertion, pre/post-read and so would be extremely useful; I'd like to work at it.
