[Twisted-Python] LDAP server based on python

I'm refering to an older post of Xavier Dutoit on this list (in early 
2008), in which he asked about the state of the ldap-server (ldaptor) 
plug-in for Twisted.

What he needed this for was virtually the same as the way we intend to 
use it: Our users shall be able to integrate all contacts of their 
collaboration account in Outlook, Thunderbird, Evolution etc. by LDAP.

For easy configuration and security purposes we want to provide a short 
LDAP tree which returns all the contacts of the user, so he can use his 
contacts everywhere, not just in the web application of the groupware.

The backend is not 100% clear yet, it may be a SQL call to a database, 
it may be a special search within a less secured master LDAP address 
book, it may be a REST call returning JSON data or whatever.

Since we are doing most of our current work in python, we don't want to 
manually extend OpenLDAP's sql backend, but rather help ldaptor's ldap 
server to reach the production level (in case it hasn't done so already).

Does someone know about the current state of the ldaptor's ldap server 

Kind regards
