I believe that the existing Solaris code (in S11+) will work with minor 
customization with any groupOfNames variant.  You'd just tell it what object class 
and attribute to use.

Anything with a fundamentally different structure... it'd be tough. The incentive 
to implement a new standard that the customers haven't adopted, that doesn't 
provide much truly new functionality, is pretty low.  (Yes, I know that's a Catch-22.)
