Hmm, it's used therein to store an entry. Yes, one could use it like this.

But for higher-level stuff I'd rather like to endorse something like 
class ldap.schema.models.Entry which is a full schema-aware dictionary 
for LDAP entries. It solves all name alias and name->OID mapping 
problems but requires LDAPv3 subschema subentry information to be 
retrieved and initialized. But I consider this also to be somewhat 
immature since I'm probably the only one who's using it. And one to do 
left: Attribute sub-types are not handled.

Ciao, Michael.
