Hello Darryl,

I'm glad I could help a bit. I'm sorry, but I was busy since yesterday
(high speed winds, electricity out and too much work on repairs).
My knowledge of LDAP ACLs is basic and that was the top I made it so
far. I think I've seen some examples in books, but I can't find any at
the moment. You might also want to check
http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/access-control.html '#8.5. Sets -
Granting rights based on relationships', but I've read it some time ago
and "didn't get it too much" :(
May be somebody experienced will pick up and help more.

Have a nice weekend,
