Are you certain? I cant test that right now unfortunately, but
wouldn't that introduce a number of issues if one person has
ccUid=john and uid=zjohn?

For instance, lets say I want to find the user with "ldapsearch -x
uid=john". I would get back something like this:

dn: uid=john,dc=people,dc=foo,dc=com
uid: john
ccUid: zjohn

dn: uid=zjohn,dc=people,dc=foo,dc=com
uid: zjohn
ccUid: john

Which is not really what I expected, and would (methink) break
Basic-Authentication horrible!
