Meta directory?

Howard / Mark,

I'm finally working on back-ldap to make it point to a pool
of servers. This will implement a sort of meta-directory, I mean
a proxy with a unique naming context that dynamically links
together different servers that represent the "branches" of the
directory in a transparent manner for the user. We need something
like this as soon as possible, and we also need all the features 
that Mark is adding to the devel code and the rewrite stuff I 
posted some time ago. I'd like to know what's the current state
of the backend (is anyone developing it at present?) I see that
none of the recent changes (I mean suffix massage and attribute
mapping) will make it into 2.0.8. Any plans? And finally, is 
anyone interested in the project? I'm pretty sure I'll get
permission from my company to submit the changes as soon as I get
it to work; but I'd like to hear suggestions, comments, critics
and so BEFORE I get my hands too deep into the code.
At present I'm experimenting, and at the same time I'm writing
some scenarios to point out all the features this meta directory
should have.

Regards, Pierangelo.
