As far as I remember, back-ldif is relatively poor in terms of non-core
functionalities it supports, as it has never been intended for actual
stuff storage with the only notable exception of back-config.
I think, due to the extra processing back-config does on top, it wouldn't
matter if back-ldif supported it or not, it would still need to be explicitly
added to back-config.
It would be interesting to see back-config based on top of something
(e.g. back-hdb or even back-mbd).
back-mdb would be pretty interesting, definitely. It would be possible (in the
future) to reference settings directly from an MDB entry record, instead of
copying back and forth between slapd global variables and Entry structures.
