As I wish to settle quite quickly on this as I don't like to keep to 
much things waiting I'm reussing a patch for rebuildextendeddn but 
without the modify_modules that is mostly targeted for me in fact ...

Once I'll have finish the updateschema script I'll see what can be done 
here ... personnaly I am for adding an option to rebuildextendeddn to 
automaticaly adds neededs modules so that extended dn works (and so that 
the script do really something ...) this option can do a provision 
--only-partition-structure behind the sceen or what ever is more clever 
to acheive this goal. The other option is to run ./provision 
--only-partition-structure alone and then run (and rerun)
