I am almost 100% sure my suggestion is wrong even before I post it but I
have to find a way to make my requirement clear with example using my
brain that lack in-depth understanding of LDAP. Such situation happens
frequently when a customer want something they are not sure what it is,
and often they are gave what they need by smart developers:) It's nice
to see Hallvard suggested the idea closer to perfection.

So my question is: do someone have time to develop a patch doing
something like allowing (o:noSubTypeSubstringMatch:=*A)? I just hope it
isn't very expensive, I am under pressure of solving more problems with
less resources. A patch that just works will do, putting it on ITS and
submit a suggestion to IETF and wait 3.5 years before openLDAP accept
