Yes, I got the code already but didn't have a suitable patch yet, 
wanted to find out if there's actual interest for it first.

I read the ITS he referred to and understand the reasons, so I already 
guessed so. Although the difference is that this patch doesn't have the 
problem described in followup 2, since it doesn't implement globbing, 
it adds support for specifying directories as an argument to the 
include command. So it doesn't introduce unexpected behaviour.

I'll use the patch for this little project (in which I need to add ACLs 
to the cfg, preferably without having to edit slapd.conf), at least, it 
seems it'll stay there then.

Just wanted to make sure if maybe someone would be interested. :-)
