I'm not quite sure I understood what you mean.  Are you going to use it
for access control?  Or do you want it to return the actual member list

conf+data, or at least a sketch of what you're trying to accomplish?  As
far as I can tell, slapo-dynlist(5) doesn't cope fine with ACLs as it is

My intention is to be able to do something like:

access to dn.exact="cn=groupa,cn=groups,dc=stanford,dc=edu"
	by ldapadmins read
	by <somedn> compare


And yes, it is to be used for access control. The problem I have right now, is that to instantiate a dynamic group, I have to give <somedn> access to the attribute(s) being used in the filter to create the group, which is exactly what I need to avoid, due to HIPAA concerns.
