Doesn't it produce extra LDAP search thus making all our search commands
slower? Is that what we want? Wouldn't it be better to distinguish between LDAP
search with no results and LDAP search with missing parent DN? The reply looks
different, at least in CLI:

# search result
search: 4
result: 0 Success

# search result
search: 4
result: 32 No such object
matchedDN: cn=accounts,dc=mkosek-f20,dc=test

Also, I do not think you can just stop using get_dn(), some commands override
this call to get more complex searches (like host-find searching for shortname).
