I've attached my implementation -- hope it helps. The patch is against
(More details: the parentDN part is fairly straightforward, given the
entryDN implementation as a model. However, the deref overlay can't use
dynamic attributes [you can try the unmodified slapd with deref and
entryDN], so I wrote a nasty hack to make it work with parentDN. Not
extensively tested, e.g., I'm not sure it would work "" as the parent.)
