Hi g0n, seems to be a very useful thing ... .

As far as I understood it yet, this module helps to copy complete entries from one database to another - now I wonder if it can be used (or extended) to update a database from the changelogs of another one.

Consider this scenario:
  1. I have two ldap directories with different schemas
  2. and want to sync changes from one to another
  3. the "source ldapd" writes ldif files containing the changes made to the entries of it's DIT
  4. I want to apply the changes (and only the changes) to the target ldap-directory (doing the schema map to the entries before updating them to the target
  5. so that would yield a connector, reading the changelogs with tail -f and feeding the mapped changes constantly, as a demon, to the target directory
Before I learned of your module, I've found, that Net::LDAP can read ldif, including the format for changing entries - so currently I create Net::LDAP::Entry objects with Net::LDAP::LDIF and then apply my mapping rules to them, finally updating them to the target directory.

I wonder if Your module can be used to something like that? Did You think of such a use case?
