I just pushed in my repo at;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/pseudobacklinks.

Pseudo backlinks are a way to do fake linked attributes on attribute 
with a DN like syntax but that are not linked attribute.

The main interest of this is that if the DN pointed by this attribute 
change then thanks to the pseudobacklink we will be able to change the 
value in the attribute as well.

This can be very useful when removing a DC or when changing the site of 
a DC and surely in other case that we don't envision yet.

I tried to be very cautious on this patches (as usual) but a small 
review wouldn't hurt I think !
