Well, since the objectClasses were already excluded for Adds, I took the
absence of this behavior in Modifies as a bug (ITS#2889). It took a few
iterations to get this down to a reasonable shape. I also confused myself a
few times in the Boolean algebra for an_oc_exclude but I'm pretty sure it's
right now. I have this backported to RE21 as well, ready to go (if OK to

For objectClasses a, b, c, and d, my test cases are:
	attrs=a,b,c    propagates    a,b,c
	attrs=a,!b,c                 a,c,d
	attrs=a,!b,!c                a,d
	attrs=!a,!b,!c               d
	attrs!=a,b,c                 d
       attrs!=a,!b,c                b
	attrs!=a,!b,!c               b,c
	attrs!=!a,!b,!c              a,b,c
