Feature request: aliasing (ITS#2432)

We have found it would be extremely useful for aliasing to be supported in LDAP.
 It is obviously too late for this in 2.1, but perhaps 2.2?

We envision something like being able to make an Auxiliary objectclass with
attribute "foo".  "foo" could be aliased to another attribute (say suMailDrop). 
Anyone searching on "foo" would get back the value for "suMaildrop" but with the
attribute name being "foo".  This would allow us to make transparent
upgrades/schema changes.
