Thank you Howard.  I didn't think to go looking for that kind of documentation.

If anyone is interested, I've thrown together a short perl script that does what
schema/openldap.ldif suggests.  I believe it will generate an ldif file that is just as valid
as the schema file it is given ;-)  I have tested that hypothesis via ldapadd on a system that
I set up for cn=config use.
