cool, thanks.  What about for an entire 'domain'.. e.g.
if I wanted to have an alias:

dn: o=Big Co, c=US
objectclass: alias
aliasedobjectname: dc=big, dc=com

Where all real entries were actually undef 'dc=big, dc=com'.

This doesn't seem to do the 'right' thing when I search for something
under the base 'o=Big Co, c=US', where 'right' would be to follow the
alias and return the appropriate entries under the 'dc=big,dc=com'

Is this something that's impossible, or am I just doing it wrong?
