Just a random thought I had while reading this thread in the background. It
might be nice to have Studio check the timestamp on the ou=schema entry to
see if it was modified since the last load.

If a schema entity changes the container above it has it's modifiedTimestamp
altered to reflect the time of the change and this bubbles up. This is how I
had implemented it in the past. Don't know if this still holds but it would
be easy to check. Also somewhere we store the timestamp in a special entry
when the last schema change occurred.

If you wanted to get fancy we can load just the changes that occurred or
even PSearch the schema area and react to the change.

None of this is critical do or die stuff but I wanted to brain dump the idea
out there.
