Argh. I _knew_ it. It was too simple ;)

So, %$ ist always the value of the referenced attribute? What if there
are multiple values, by accident or by design?

This would have to look like
user_attrs = homeDirectory=home,quotaBytes,quotaMessages=quota_rule=*:bytes=%$:messages=%$
which of course does not work (I think).

Yeah, the current "backward" notation is mighty confusing, at least for
I would have expected something like
user_attrs = home=homeDirectory,quota_rule=*:bytes=quotaBytes
user_attrs = home=homeDirectory,quota_rule=quotaRule
(if I have the complete quota_rule in an attribute instead of just the
Sig lost. Core dumped.
