Have you actually tried this?  Really, we are not in the buisness of
creating solutions that simply don't work.  Many production sites
(mind included) rely on our LDAP code, including the bahaviour that
allows DCs to bind to slave ldap servers, rebinding to the mster when
required.  Indeed, we recently intergrated the 'ldap replication
sleep' parmaeter to assist in this process.
