It works with OpenLDAP servers. AFAICS sssd has client code using it.
There is also a memberof overlay that populates memberOf attributes
users. Would it be difficult to make a memberuid overlay that populates
memberUid attributes in the group?
Of course you can implement a slapo-memberuid and a slapo-attrvalueref if you
have enough spare time. There's also some experimental code in OpenLDAP's
contrib/ to use posixGroup/memberUID in ACLs. But IMO there's absolutely no
