Works fine. There is just one part that is IMO too complicated:

+            hbacrule = options['seealso']
+            kw = dict(cn=hbacrule, all=True)
             _entries = api.Command.hbacrule_find(None, **kw)['result']
             del options['seealso']
-            if _entries:
-                options['seealso'] = _entries[0]['dn']
+            found = False
+            # look for an exact match. The search may return partial
+            # matches.
+            for entry in _entries:
+                if entry['cn'][0] == hbacrule:
+                    found = True
+                    options['seealso'] = entry['dn']
+            if not found:
+                return dict(count=0, result=[], truncated=False)

I think hbacrule_find(None, cn=HBACRULE) should not return partial
matches, but just the exact match (tried with hbacrule-find
--name=HBACRULE). Then the loop over entries wouldn't be needed.

Couldn't we simply call hbacrule_show since we want just one HBAC rule
with a known primary key?
