The strongest objection is against creating a new LDAP object to hold a
duplicate of the ACIs. And I fully agree with the objection we do not
need duplicates in the Directory. Especially since parsing the object
is already done in the code, so the "objectified" form is not an issue.

Rob, what about creating a hash table per ACI that has named attributes
for each component of the ACI ? Would that be easier to pass to the UI ?
To we have a way to pass arrays of hash tables ? (each element of the
array is an ACI in hash table format).

Would this actually help at all? Or would it be too complex for the UI
to interpret ?
