Technical Summary
 
  This document specifies an extension to the Lightweight Directory
  Access Protocol (LDAP) to allow the client to read the
  target entry of an update operation (e.g., Add, Delete, Modify,
  ModifyDN).  The extension utilizes controls attached to
  update requests to request and return copies of the target entry.  One
  request control, called the Pre-Read request control, indicates that a
  copy of the entry before application of update is to be returned.
  Another control, called the Post-Read request control, indicates that
  a copy of the entry after application of the update is to be returned.
  Each request control has a corresponding response control used to
  return the entry.

  To ensure proper isolation, the controls are processed as an atomic
  part of the update operation.
