What makes you think it doesn't support aliases? The standard X.500
"alias" object class is handled the way it would be for a DAP client,
i.e., you get back the DN of the aliased object and de-reference it
yourself if you're 'reading' an entry. The LDAP 'search' operation
provides alias handling similar to what you would get with DAP.

What specifically were you looking for?
