Backend proposal


just a proposal for a new, simple backend:


If you have an LDAP server for dc=somewhere,dc=org and 
want to store referrals for dc=elsewhere,dc=org  , 
dc=somecompany,dc=com  etc., then this cannot be
trivially implemented (is it?). Since bdb supports only
a single suffix, a separate bdb is required for every 
referral, or one for suffix="", causing other problems. 

The proposal is to implement a very simple backend which
does not support deleting, writing, changing, just reading. 
It should read the configuration from a plain file like

dc=elsewhere,dc=org                ldap://...
dc=somecompany, dc=com             ldap://...

and generate the apropriate referral entries. 

Should be easy to convert dnssrv into such a backend.
