That sounds like scope creep. Out of scope for the current discussion.
Just thinking about this a bit more - I don't really see any good solution
you want memberof to accept DNs of entries that don't exist, you can set
to ignore. And then it'll accumulate DNs of nonexistent entries...
If you want it to maintain an accurate list of only existing entry DNs, then you
have to check for existence at the time of updating the memberof attribute.
Another option is to let it update lazily only during a refresh, and then run
a cleanup job when the refresh completes. Not sure how we would rig things up
for refreshDone to trigger other modules.
