Excuse me, but normally I would expect an admin who installs slapd to 
want to create a directory. I don't think we should change that aspect
of the postinst. What will change though is that dpkg-reconfigure will
give you a simple way to replace the directory with a new one. So you
just need to accept the defaults on slapd install and run
dpkg-reconfigure when you want to create the real directory.

I did not yet look into the advantages of the new version. What I 
noticed is the stuff that affects the build scripts - for example you
can now build the backends into plugins etc.

I did not yet do any performance checks. First I'd like to have 
OpenLDAP 2.1 fully working (the package that is).
