The possibility to slapcat (and, in principle, slapadd) 
back-ldap/back-meta is intriguing, but I'm not sure I see its usefulness 
in terms of cost/effectiveness.  In fact, there's very little difference 
in slapcat'ting or in ldapsearch'ing a proxied database, as the data 
would in any case be accessed via protocol.  In any case, adding tool 
hooks to get an entry via slapadd should be trivial enough to give it a try.
