It is true; that's why I suggested you to try back-ldap.  Whether it will
do "dynamic failover" or not it's a different issue...

Note that multiple URIs in one directive, for back-meta, are separated by
tabs ('\t'), while for back-ldap they're separated by spaces or commas;
back-meta differs, because it requires the naming context, and naming
contexts can contain spaces and usually do contain commas, and we don't
want the URI directive to be URL-escaped! (although it should...)
