forwarding search queries + auth across multiple backends


i would like to integrate 2 userdirectories (one stored directly in a
slapd ldbm database, the other one stored in a sql database with an
back-sql interface) into a single userdirectory. (to be able to use
pam-ldap and libnss-ldap)

the problem is that back-meta doesn't work for this, because auth data
isn't forwarded.

when i mount the two backends in the same slapd, only the more specific
one is queried when doing a search.

i can't use referrals because pam-ldap and libnss-ldap don't follow

is there another possibility to solve this problem?

would specifying on of the backends as subordinate be a possible
solution? (according to the docs it seems so, i just played a little bit
around with this option, but wasn't able to get it working.)
