I'm trying to change the value for <new-name> on a rename operation.
This sounds strange, but I have a linux driver that must have usernames
less than 8 characters.

I have a policy to generate unique usernames on creation, but a rename
is an issue.

I can detect the rename and reset the CN to be unique, but as the rename
operation sets the <new-name> first the driver renames the user to be
the same as the eDirectory CN, and then trys to modify the user with the
newly generated unique CN.

So, what i'm looking to do is remove/modify the <new-name> value in the
operation via xpath or similar. However, i'm not really sure how to do
this as I cant do it via a normal xpath replace and the <new-name> is
not an attribute.

any takers?
