As far as I understood, only 2 backends are needed, one for normal 
operation (as 'authoritative' db) and one for migration (as rwite-
only backup db).

Why don't you compile two versions of each backend, one for each 
purpose, with the interface functions of the migration backend 
redefined, e.g.

#	define pdb_add_sam_account mpdb_add_sam_account

This way, you get two seperate name spaces for authoritative and 
migration backend.
