[Samba] Samba and ldap referrals

If I set up a BDC with a replicated ldap server, can I point the "ldap
backend" and "idmap backend" options *both* to the localhost and enable
a referral on the slave so that writes (ie Idmap updates) will be
referred to the master server?

I'm running debian unstable with openldap 2.4 (and libs) and Samba

I know I should use the new idmap interface but this is on a production
network; I will test the new interface on a sanboxed LAN.
