Fair enough. So you'd have the LDAP client searching through ALL maps
until it found a matching one?

What needs doing for NSS_LDAP to support this? Are you looking at this
in the near future? What I think would be cool would be something like

passwd: files ldap [ou=passwd,o=xavier]
group: files ldap [ou=group,o=xavier]

Although I guess that would probably require some changes to the
nsswitch libs on the various platforms and therefore not applicable.
Perhaps something in ldap.conf.

Thanks for your reply.


P.S. I love your work ;-)
