I should qualify my response because I remember hearing noise about this
from my local OpenLDAP guy. But I did actually ask him just now if this is
right and he thinks it is.
Yes! I think this should be possible. See the ldap backend type in the
slapd.conf to setup the proxy part of what you want. And then see the docs
on overlays: http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/overlays.html for making
the changes you want this client to see.
