I am sure it can be done, however it might take significant work; I know 
you can do it. (I would like to play with it as well, yet I would have 
to invest time which I cannot afford now...)

Although I will not be able to attend the event, it would be nice to 
make this demo in a way that it is streamlined enough to be (relatively) 
easily reproduced by others. I guess that the most important part of 
this effort is ACL authoring in order to isolate entries / attributes.

Please post your work and scripts here (or notify us on where you have 
posted it). I would surely like to use this work (esp. if it is handy 

Despite the fact that PowerDNS with LDAP backend seems underutilized and 
LDAP backend development has been neglected for years (due to lack of 
interest and private investment), I see much potential in it, as you, 
and it would be worth trying to revive it.

Unfortunately, Grégory Oestreicher's fork 
(http://repo.or.cz/w/pdns-ldap-backend.git) of the LDAP backend (which 
is the most updated source code) has not had any progress for two years now.

All the best,
