... and will be for a long time: back-meta is not intended as a
replacement of back-ldap; on the contrary, it's been debated for a while
if back-meta could be abandoned in favor of glued instances of back-ldap. 
This project is now in standby until we find some time to work on
(non-trivial) enabling asynchronous internal searches...

Let me add that glueing back-ldap is at all a desirable solution.  The
only disadvantage with respect to back-meta on slow connections is that
searches are performed sequentially on all targets.  If you can live with
