Will Samba LDAP have data store backends like OpenLDAP does?  OpenLDAP
has a LDAP backend to LDAP data in another LDAP server, which sounds
weird, but if Samba LDAP would support this to, it could act as a
LDAP proxy.  Or are there any other measures foreseen to interoperate
with existing LDAP servers?
