Yupp. That would be nice. May I propose to use another DN for this backend?

In web2ldap you can configure many templates and other stuff for a given name
space (besides other configuration granularity). E.g. if this would be
"cn=OpenLDAP Tasks" I could ship a better default config in web2ldap's source

See http://www.web2ldap.de/web2ldapcnf_hosts.html#cascaded_config

BTW: Same for cn=config. If it would be "cn=OpenLDAP Config" I could ship with
a better default configuration. By now I only have commented examples. Maybe
in 2.5?
