AH HA. sigh. I've been playing with building very nearly the same sort of DIT
structure that Eric mentioned... on a slapd-based directory. Had been wondering
if I'd done something wrong with my alias entries.

Hmm. Ok, I'll bite, what are the plans for future public-domain reference
implementations of LDAP and do they include Alias handling? "How much" work is
it to impl that support -- like, roughly which of slapd's *.c files would have
to be touched?
