The next step after this (perhaps as a later effort) is to integrate the
provision-backend script into provision, so it is optionally called (but
can still be run as provision-backend) and the slapd shut down again. 

The one thing we want to be careful about is not to leave the slapd
running after we finish the provision script.  (in particular, so make
test does not leave around slapd children).

No worries.  I've got plenty of other things I need to work on, so what
I really appreciate is you taking this area on.
