I see a few potential issues in current slapo-translucent(5) filtering
- if an attribute is marked as local, it will not be used to filter entries on
the remote server; however, that attribute might exist in entries on the remote
server, resulting in inconsistent search results
- the same is also true in the reverse case
in those cases, it might be helpful to let the same attribute be listed as local
*and* remote, acting accordingly.
Also, there is no way to indicate that some attributes are local and *all the
others* are remote (and viceversa); it is suggested to allow "*" (and "+"?), as
well as "1.1" to indicate no attributes. Wildcards would take effect unless
attribute specifications are present.
I don't know, right now, how easy it would be to implement those enhancements;
I'm just noting them here as a reminder for a feature request.
