I think the thread got derailed a bit. I don't care about the static 
slapd.conf vs slapd.d debate. We're using back-config the "proper" way as far 
as I can tell.

My original question was to find out if anyone was managing their openldap 
configuration. We have a crude way using a VCS, but was wondering if others had 
a better way.

Having said that, I appreciate all the input so far.
