Neat! I have to play with this when I get the time... Perhaps I could
try to make an LDAP to SNMP gateway (:

I have another thing that I want, it doesn't quite fit in with what you
are doing though. In the stackable filesystem layer modell, you can
easily have layers that do mostly nothing passing things through them.
One use is to have a layer that adds triggers, so that when a certain
file is read/written etc. a trigger goes off. Something like this could
be done for LDAP as well if the back-end interface is done right. Right
now this must be done by a process checking logs.
