rwm allows you to rewrite any attributeType; however, this would have no
effect on bind operations.  Bind operations are transparent to rwm except
for the bind DN.  You could map another attribute to userPassword just for
searches and writes.

You may insert a back-ldap or a back-relay in between the master
and the slave, and use rwm to remap attributes.
