(ITS#5845) Distribution List support for OpenLDAP schema

I want to create distribution list in OpenLDAP. Meaning - If I have a group
called admins@ldap.com and there are two members - bejoy@ldap.com and
bejnet@ldap.com; and mail is sent to admins@ldap.com = both these members must
get the email. Exchange has this feature. This mail id should have a display
name feature as well - that would show up on search of address books.

At present the work around is using qmail's schema for this distribution list. I
believe inetOrgPerson schema could have a group version too - which would need a
compulsory attribute called members which must have atleast one member mentioned
under it.
