Well, searches on member and memberOf are common, so it seems we would
quickly find ourselves downloading the whole backend DB and filtering
Searching on memberOf doesn't make a lot of sense to me, when you could simply
read the group object directly. When is this actually a useful thing to do? An
alternative would be to make the memberOf overlay intercept these filters and
rewrite them in terms of member.
