You know the way openldap typically backends onto a BerkeleyDB*
Well, It can backend onto SQL databases too with back-sql .
Slightly nontrivial to setup, and you'll still need to write stored
procs to transform from your tables to the ldap-in-sql schema (but that
could be done on trigger, maybe, for insta-update goodness). There's a
good-looking LDAP-Postgres HOWTO, though I don't know how up-to-date it
* One really should familiarise oneself with BDB admin tools
([lib]dbX.Y-util packages in debian - do an apt-cache search berkeley)
if one is running OpenLDAP with a bdb backend - several heart attacks
averted in DIAS by proper use of db_recover
