RE: Feature request: attribute searches return matching attribute (ITS#2431)

Matched values, I think, doesn't fulfill this request.
However, the request is pretty much the same as ITS#2432
so I suspect the 2.1 approach you suggest for it may
work for this.  I also note that 2.2 will offer a
number of other capabilities which, if not outright
supporting such things, will make implementing such
things a lot easier.  (E.g., virtual directory work,
SLAPI, etc..)
