Openldap in Debian squeeze use dynamic configuration ([slapconf],
which is upstream recommended).

I have added a [hack] that convert file-based config to runtime-based
config when running kolab_bootstrap or kolabconf. This is far from
perfect. Another hackish solution would be to force slapd to go the
old file-based config way.

The long-term solution would be to modify the ldap tree directly
and/or use "ldap_*" and "slap*" commands. This is [issue3000]. I'm
cc-ing kolab-devel, as this is where it should happen.

- compliant with upstream openldap recommendations
- no need to reload slapd when changing configuration (acls, ...)
- no need to reload slapd when adding slaves (slurpd or syncrepl) - I
have not tested this
- ability to add slaves from the slave using ldap instead of ssh
(having the cn=config root password)
- ability to add kolab on top of an existing slapd server

- Difficult: how to bootstrap?
- kolabconf gains complexity (not doing only file-based configuration)
