Implementation comments aside, I'm just not convinced this is even the
right design.  The knowledge of what LDAP entries mean what is in
pdb_ldap.c - not in pdbedit.  If we change some detail, we would have to
update both places.

What is the need for this patch - and could it be implemented like
pdb_xml - as a passdb backend we could import from and export too?
