I would prefer a more elegant solution.  Perhaps not loading those
classes in FDS, and allowing the FDS users to see the inheritance from
Samba4Top?  However, this is your mapping, and in the end I don't mind
how you do it (make sure you update the simple_ldap_map however!)

Renames are great where this a problem we can't solve any other way, but
I would hate to inflict Samba4* on the world where we could come up with
better solutions. 

If you are going to rename this much, then I suggest you may wish to, as
you proposed earlier, rewrite simple_ldap_map to use a real
configuration file, shared with the schema mapping code.  Otherwise,
these will get out of sync.

Any chance you can post these (particularly the first patch) as
