Well, I don't mind the memberUid vs member problem b/c I don't really mind
having both attributes in the same entry.  I'd rather have duplicated
information the same entry than have duplicated information in two different
entries in two different branches.

So, I assume that OpenLDAP doesn't require the objectclass to be
groupOfNames in order for the group functions to work.  In which case, I can
go ahead with making the objectclasses posixGroup (since NSS *does* require
the objectclass to be posixGroup) and add an auxilliary objectclass that
will allow for the member attribute.

I'm hoping if this won't work, someone will have tried to stop me by now.
