That certainly sounds like the correct approach, particularly if we were
not to consider an LDAP backend.  It avoids the need for controls etc,
because it is simply a connection to a seperate ldb, and can by design
only contain the attributes desired.

But if I want to keep the goal of an LDAP backend alive, how should I
handle this?
