Gives the path to a Unix domain socket to which the commands will
be sent and from which replies are received.
When used as an overlay, these additional directives are defined:

Specify which request types to send to the external program. The default is
empty (no requests are sent).

Specify which response types to send to the external program. "result"
sends just the results of an operation. "search" sends all entries that
the database returned for a search request. The default is empty
(no responses are sent).

When used as an overlay, the external program should return a
CONTINUE response if request processing should continue normally, or
a regular RESULT response if the external program wishes to bypass the
underlying database.
