Noel has a very good idea for providing bundles of JNDI ObjectFactorys and 
StateFactorys for the various published LDAP schema objectclasses so you can 
read them as objects from a relational entry. 
So these factories for doing O/R would be packaged into the server and clients 
as a jar.  For example entries implementing inetOrgPerson can be accessed as 
InetOrgPerson JavaBeans.  The object relational aspects are very stimulating 
you're right.
