I have the need to search a whole sub-tree for something like collective

Now I'm wondering whether it's possible to search for the virtual attributes
generated by slapo-variant. And probably I'd like to use the regex variant.
I've read the section LIMITATIONS in slapo-variant(5) which says that regex
variants only support reading the virtual attributes with scope base. It
also implies that searching for these virtual attributes is not possible at
Is that correct?
that's correct, if we can't identify potential candidates upfront, we
would have to read the whole DB and do it ourselves. Pretty sure that's
the very reason slapo-collect has the same limitations.
As is usual with LDAP, the server isn't set up to correlate random data
in a single search, you'll have to run the intermediate searches and
synthesize things yourself.
