Equality test, SourceDN/DestDN

There are many condition tokens that can use equality tests of 7
different types.

Case Sensitive
Case Insensitive
Regular Expression
Source Dn
Destination DN

The first 5 are sort of self explanatory. But the last two, Source DN
and Destination DN are less clear. The docs suggest they use DN
matching semantics.

Well that was less than helpful. (I suspect this is basically a request
to Shon, unless someone else knows...)

What does DN matching mean?

One simple example, using eDir syntax.

\TREE\O-name\OU-name\CN and O-name\OU-name\CN are the same (note the
leading backslash needs the tree name, without that leading backslash,
you do not specify the tree name).

But is that included in this test?

How about implied case insensitivity? Is it really?

What else?

And how would this differ with the various defined DN types (as seen in
ParseDN token, which knows about:

Source DN
Destination DN
qualified dot
qualified slash

(Custom is WAY cool, see
for more info!)

SourceDN/DestDN formats are technically specified by the shim, which
defines what its native DN format structure is. So they of course
depend on the channel, the direction, and the driver. But they should
be one of the other formats.
