ppolicy and replication issues

Hello list.

I'm planning to deploy ppolicy on our directory, but I'm facing a problem with replication, as I only control the master server, and not the slaves configuration for the moment.

Despite being only active on the master server, a local experiment told me than the slaves need the following items:
- the ppolicy schema, for replicating policies objects
- the ppolicy overlay, for replicating operational attributes of user objects

The first requisite is quite easy to achieve, as it is just a file I need other admins to add in their configuration. The second is a bit more difficult, as it is an additional binary, and given the lack of consistency between servers, I'm not sure it is available for each installation...

So, is there some way of either configuring ppolicy or the replication, to avoid the need for the ppolicy overlay on the slaves, while I don't have full control over all the servers ?

A system software crash will cause hardware to act strangely and the programmers will blame the customer engineer.
