slapo-dynlist desgin question(s)

Stanford is looking at implementing groups into our LDAP servers, and in particular, looking at using slapo-dynlist. However, it does not behave as I expected it to.

Basically, it uses the credentials of whomever bound to determine the membership list. This means I would have to give access to a privileged attribute to those who wished to use groups, which is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. What I wanted to do, was specifically control the access to the group objects themselves. If an entity has access to the group object, they would then be able to see all current members of the group.

I believe this would mean adding functionality to slapo-dynlist to where it uses the rootdn to perform the internal search instead of the credentials. Would it be possible to have this sort of addition?
