This would not be an issue for Microsoft, as they replicate and store in
'UTF16'.  We need to override our handling of this attribute, and only
return it as a 'string' when dealing with an LDAP client.  That way, our
internal users can deal with it as a byte buffer, just like all other
binary attributes.
