why not just use OpenLDAP's slapd-sql backend, until Ldaptor will "rise 
to World Domination some day" ;) ? That backend was designed 
specifically to solve the cases you describe, i think. As i've some 
rather good experience with Ldaptor's client part, i've never used the 
(unfinished) server parts though. But i haven't used the slapd-sql 
backend either ;) .
