No. That is not possible.
Are there any plans on introducing such a feature, or technical
reasons why it can't be done? On a typical machine on which I'm
running slapo-pcache, I get about 70-80% of queries answered from the
cache - this would be 90%+ if queries that didn't specify attr lists
(i.e. gets all user attributes) could also be cached.
I'm not saying that I should be able to specify an emptry attr list
with proxyattrset - that probably wouldn't make a lot of sense, but
being able to set it to all the user attributes returned for a
particular query that doesn't specify which attrs it wants would be
