There is a back-sql, since MySQL has an ODBC driver on Linux you should
be able to use it.

But see the FAQ.  An RDBMS is not really suitable as a general purpose
back-end as LDAP is not relational and it just creates headaches, plus
it won't perform as well.

Or the list archives, this has been hashed through many times,
