Quanah was just exemplifyinmg the possible usage of a dynamic group as
opposed to a static one.

If you use a static group, you simply define an object that lists as
"member" or whatever you like the DN of the members.

If you use a dynamic group, you define an object that lists as "memberURL"
or whatever you like the rules to compute the DN of the members.  Since
"memberURL" is basically an URL, you define, for each of them, the
(internal: you can't put a hostname) search that computes the member,
which is made of a base, a scope and a filter.  In the filter, you can put
whatever selects objects that are member of the group.  Quanah suggested
using some attribute that qualifies membership, but anything can be used;
for example:

dn: cn=Added December 2005,ou=Groups,dc=example,dc=com
objectClass: groupOfURLs
cn: Added December 2005

lists people added in december 2005.
