I don't care about LDAP standard in this particular installation. 
I need an OpenLDAP server at this site only as a shared address book,
it will perform no other function and will never interoperate with
anything else.

So if OpenLDAP can be tweaked to provide server side sort control on
cn or sn, I would go for it. Can it be done by modifying the 'name'
attribute in the core.schema? Or by a patch?
