It is possible to perform sparse replication with the new LDAP Sync replication engine,
because you can use general search specification in the replication specification.
I'll make a section of the Admin Guide dedicated for the LDAP Sync replication available soon.

Subject: partial replication
Suppose I have a very simple tree structure using the DC components, say I have 100,000 user under dc=mycompany,dc=com. How can I setup replication such that all user with CN=A* replicate to server A, CN=B* to server B and so on? I know I can use DN suffix to control replication but for this setup, all users are under the same DN suffix.
