LDAP data store, provide the backend data myself.  In reality the backend data will be partially
constructed from an existing RDBMS user database, and a mix of other more dynamic elements
(like delegating some elements of authentication to another source - e.g. another LDAP server
or AD).

does anyone have any tips/example/etc for me to get started?   I had a look at the documents
and the project seems to be made up of many submodules/projects.   So I'm hopeful my idea
is achievable .... but would like your tips on where to begin.
