To be clear, there are some corner casesthat are not handled correctly.
Typically, in the Ldap Server I'm testing with, a partition has some
overlays, thus some entries, and deleting this partiton does not work
because the Partition's entry is deleted *before* the Overlays' entries,
whcih is not supported.

One more missing piece (or to be clear, something that I forgot when I
modified the existing pages I have modified), I have to add the
listeners for each parameter in order to save the modified fields into
teh new partition. It was present in the old code, and I just forgot to
add it. It's not a big burden, mainly a single line of code to add for
each single value parameter, and an loop for each MV parameter.

FTR, the code exists, it's just a question to map it to the menus.
