  handle operational attributes

  createTimestamp: HIDDEN, searchable, ldaptime, alias for whenCreated
  modifyTimestamp: HIDDEN, searchable, ldaptime, alias for whenChanged

     for the above two, we do the search as normal, and if
     createTimestamp or modifyTimestamp is asked for, then do
     additional searches for whenCreated and whenChanged and fill in
     the resulting values

     we also need to replace these with the whenCreated/whenChanged
     equivalent in the search expression trees


     on init we need to setup attribute handlers for these so
     comparisons are done correctly. The resolution is 1 second.

     on add we need to add both the above, for current time

     on modify we need to change whenChanged

  subschemaSubentry: HIDDEN, not-searchable, 
                     points at DN CN=Aggregate,$SCHEMADN

     for this one we do the search as normal, then add the static
     value if requested. How do we work out the $BASEDN from inside a

  structuralObjectClass: HIDDEN, CONSTRUCTED, not-searchable. always same as objectclass?

     for this one we do the search as normal, then if requested ask
     for objectclass, change the attribute name, and add it

  allowedAttributesEffective: HIDDEN, CONSTRUCTED, not-searchable, 
     list of attributes that can be modified - requires schema lookup

  objectClasses: in schema only

  construct a canonical name from a message

  tree before the search is done
