That is all fine but having *always* go through complete DN is simply 
wrong from user experience perspective. If we can have helper shortcut 
for most common cases for stock FreeIPA, we should do that.

For example, if DN provided by user does not include = sign, treat it 
as last component CN. That would already cover majority of cases.
