LDAP search suffix

At the county we are using a global LDAP server with people/group/machine
subdivide by "ou=". (see below) Unfortunatly because SAMBA will only do 
searches using the
global ldap_base we are forced to either modify our LDAP implementation 
(not an option) or modify
SAMBA.  We are considering  writing a patch for SAMBA but are wonder if 
there was
a specific reason why the ldap_*_suffix is only used when creating new 
users, instead of
also being used for lookups?
