We were looking at proxy or subordinate referrals for an OpenLDAP->AD
On subordinate referrals I found that not all the applications I tried to
integrate work well with it (none actually).
For proxies the issue I found was that I could not proxy to a name

# Query the appropriate backend servers
ldap://server2 ldap://server3 ldap://server4"
