I'm working with a SunDS (modified Novell LDAP server afaik), and it
also has this feature, i.e. if you have a group

dn: cn=goodguys,dc=example,dc=com
uniqueMember: uid=superman,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com

then the entry for this user will automatically have a correct
"isMemberOf" attribute

dn: uid=superman,ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
isMemberOf: cn=goodguys,dc=example,dc=com

If ApacheDS doesn't have this feature, it would be nice to have :)
