Right, there's a schema impedance mismatch. Goal #2 would want to take some
random table that has columns for 'employee ID' , 'first name', 'last 
name' and 'manager' for example
and make that stuff show up as LDAP entries. Using the RDBMS mapping 
approach outlined above
the tables wouldn't look at all like that. They'd all have only two 
columns for example. Both
columns would contain data that to a first approximation would be 
gibberish to a regular
RDBMS client application.
