Jakub's approach is different that ours, we are rewriting the better 
part of the ldb stack into OpenLDAP, so he should be done faster. Even 
if it does not solve all the performance issues, an ldb_mdb backend will 
still be very useful - kudos Jakub for undertaking this.

As for mdb indexing - I haven't "been" in that part of the code yet and 
unfortunately cannot give a meaningful advice. If something is 
happening, it is somewhere in the servers/slapd/back_mdb :).
