please help, getting desperate


i have a question regarding the pipe, when being used to contact the LDA
(in my case, dovecot).

my virtual users are in LDAP, but they have their own UID and GID. since
i don't want to do a setuid script for the LDA (and obviously the LDA
needs to run with the correct permissions to be able to affect the
target user's mailbox files), is there a way to use the whole record
object from the LDAP query (which contains the uidNumber and gidNumber
attributes) and use some kind of substitution in the when
specifying the user=UID:GID parameter?
