I think you misunderstood my proposal. I'm not suggesting we muck with

So you mean adding a response control value made of something like

controlValue ::= SEQUENCE {
	extended	extendedDN

extendedDN ::= SEQUENCE {
	attrval		attrVal

attrVal ::= {
	attrspec	attrSpec,
	value		octetString

where the sequence of attrSpec was specified in the control request.  In
the case at hand, the control request would contain GUID, SID and
entryDN.  Is this what you mean?  Then, it would be the client's task to
use the response to build a string in the format specified by

Yes, that's what I had in mind. The question is whether that's sufficient for Samba's purposes; the control that I've described is sufficiently general that it would be useful for a lot of other cases.
