this is done by the LDAP backend itself:

http://www.linuxnetworks.de/doc/index.php/PowerDNS_LDAP_Backend/Example#Basic_objects

it actually does not insert any objects into the LDAP tree but rather
queries the LDAP server in a "reasonable" way if you set
"ldap-method=strict"

In my naive world querying for an IP address is not much different from
querying a name, so I hope that that might be possible with other
backends as well :-)
