Need to write a rule that builds a Referral object that is to be part of a LdapResult.  The
rule simply creates an empty ReferralImpl object and pushes it onto the stack.  Another OCTET
STRING rule extending rule keeps generating ByteBuffers for the LDAPURLs and adding them to
the Referral object on the top of the object stack.

If we extend the PrimitiveOctetStringRule and override the finish() method of the rule but
call the super method at the top then we can just pop the objectStack for the ByteBuffer since
the super call pushes the ByteBuffer of the OCTET STRING onto the objectStack.

So we need two rules to do this right:

1. ReferralUrlRule extends PrimitiveOctetStringRule
2. ReferralRule extends AbstractRule 

We could use reflection and have a special form of PrimitiveOctetStringRule that calls a method
to add the content it generates but this would slow things down.  Plus I'd probably use BeanUtils
and that would mean an extra dependency. As a general rule we want to stay far away from reflection
in this very low level decoder.
