Does anyone know if any clients follow "SeeAlso"? I'm trying to figure
out if it's a simple reference, or if clients actually follow it manually
and pull information from the SeeAlso. Like:
if RecordA has SeeAlso: RecordB
Would a client return the contents of RecordA -and- RecordB or just
RecordA and the SeeAlso is there for the reader's benefit?
In 2.2, you might implement an overlay for slapd that does so on behalf of
the client; see servers/slapd/overlays/refint.c as an example.
Some time ago, I looked into a similar issue myself, of building aggregate
entries by chasing seeAlso's or other DN-valued attrs, but got stuck with
the problem of ensuring the consistency of the resulting entry. In fact,
in most if not all the interesting cases, more than a
structuralObjectClass would be required for the resulting entry.
I would think that multiple seeAlso attributes could be problematic as well.
