Migrating from Sun DSEE & Boolean values question


We're planning to migrate to OpenLDAP from Sun Directory Server. So far
the test setup works fine, with one potential problem.  Sun's directory
server treats boolean values as case-insensitive, while the RFC (and
OpenLDAP) require upper-case TRUE and FALSE values. 

Is there a way of forcing case insensitivity on boolean values with
OpenLDAP, so that any clients who are applying filters like "(foo=true)"
will continue to work? Or is the only way to maintain stats logging and
try to locate particular scripts on the machines that connect, and fix
each one in turn? I realise the former option is not RFC compliant, but
for me, it'll be very convenient to be permissive.
