Description of problem:
Would like to request a dynamic group functionality, similar to the dynamic group overlay functionality in OpenLDAP:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Couldn't Reproduce

Steps to Reproduce:
N/A - enhancement request

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
A method for creating dynamic groups where the entry returned has the group membership dynamically generated and returned as part of a list of dn's (i.e. fill in the uniquemember values) based on an LDAP URI (similar to groupofURLs, but have the server run the query instead of the client, and return the matches as part of the uniquemember attr - openldap actually offers more flexibility than this, but even supporting just ldap groups like this would be useful enough).

Additional info:
This is an enhancement request, not a bug.
