[thelist] ColdFusion, LDAP, and binary data

A really extrem solution should consist in 'rewriting' the LDAP protocol so
that to manage binary results ie. 'just' calling an external Java class like
this one : http://www.openldap.org/jldap/
or writing a cfx ldap client adapted from the OpenLDAP C sources
(all openldap sources are available for download here :
http://developer.novell.com/ndk/downloadaz.htm )
..hard work , I guess.. :(

An other solution should consist in using a redondant index in an external
join table, associating the pseudo-binary ldap query result to a numeric
index (a complete initialisation and a series of triggers managing this join
table could help, also)..
looks bad, but who maters ?

Any other idea ?
