Do IPA and PKI use different suffixes?

It may be easy to enhance this plugin and other plugins to allow different
configuration per subtree.

Or use ldapi? I don't think ldapjdk can use ldapi.

Use a union? e.g. if ipa needs attribute "a" indexed for equality only, but
PKI needs it indexed for presence and substring only, then we can just index it
for eq, sub, and pres.

If both PKI and IPA use structural objectclasses, we may have to create
corresponding auxiliary objectclasses so that you can mix-in both sets of
objectclasses while having only one structural objectclass per entry.
