More - such functionality reminds me Lotus Domino enviroment, which is not 
object-oriented nor relational database, nor the hybrid of these. In Lotus 
each Entry stores a collection of Items (attributes), while each Item in 
the Entry can have arbitral number of independent, same-value or 
different-value variables. Access to each value of each entry is via
iteration over the collection. 
Quite confusing, AFAIR, and LDAP is, hopefully, far from such ideas ;-)


I use Sendmail for MTA, Debian Linux for OS, Windowmaker for WM, Rand
for philosophy, and The Last Buell for a ride. And I consider these best
of the best a man can get. Please, let me know, when a better stuff'll
arrive, so I could pick it up and include in this list. Thank you.
