Although not that widely used, this operator is quite useful in some cases, when you just can't implement any loop-based logic. For example, for us it breaks IEEE 802.1X VLAN assignment with FreeRADIUS.

No, this operator is not supported, but patches (with tests) to
implement it would be most welcome.  It looks rather tricky to implement
however, as it does not just match on a single record, but on multiple
possible records.  We would essentially need to implement the chasing of
the chain in an ldb module in the same way that a client would.
