OK, this is an item for the todo list;
I'll commit this change by now, because
I need the functionality.

By the way, I note that many operations
that may be common to extops in back-ldap
could be anticipated in ldap_back_extended()
I'm thinking about ldap_back_getconn() and
ldap_back_dobind(), which I had to anticipate
in the case of proxyAuthz.  This would save
some work and code duplication in each extop
function, e.g. ldap_back_exop_passwd().
