I'd maybe be willing to try doing this on my own, if sombeody could give me 
some hints on how to start. Is it just the implementation of the methods for 
storing and retrieving the group mappings which I've found in the LDAP 
backend code? Or is there anything more to do?

Nobody using it with more than a few users/clients?
What a pitty...

Thanks a lot,
