Kurt sent out a note about this a couple weeks ago. Here's the main point:
So, instead of a candidate filter of:
we need to have:
where the DNs of the scope part are determined by a prior
recursive algorithm doing:
where this algorithm is sensitive to subordinate/superior
relationships between DNs.
So basically in search_candidates we need to call a recursive function
"alias_candidates" that builds the list of aliased scope DNs.
