Both certificateMatch and certificateExactMatch are implemented
(they rely on OpenSSL), though I am not sure the latter fully
supports the recently approved standard track assertion syntax
(draft-zeilenga-ldap-x509).  The test script appears to
be using an experimental assertion syntax.  The code likely
needs some updating.

For arbitrary matching, one needs component matching.

Per the spec, yes.
