Thanks for the positive response.  I've gone ahead trying to implement 
this with Apache DS.

It's proving difficult in places, but I'll post separate questions about 
the issues I've hit.    I'm also using 1.5.5, because 1.5.6 has changed 
significantly enough to be another barrier to implementing (there was 
another thread on this).   Once this has settled down I'll move to 1.5.6.
