yes, that is what would happen.

while it is possible to chose postgresql as a database backend
for ldap, this wont be the way it will work for us. ldap will
have its own backend (e.g. bdb or so), which will be updated or
replaced when needed. one way to update it is with incremental
ldifs. this is what i talked about above.
