The interface to our new student information system is providing me with
a dozen or so "flag" attribute values that I need to store and to do
some other things based on their values. No problem with the doing other
things part, but I'm looking at these and thinking I'd like to do
something other than just storing them all as a bunch of C_I_STRING
attributes. I'd kinda like to have one "flags" attribute with a bunch of
values (maybe using the Home Directory syntax to tag them with
name/value pairs) or something like that instead. But, maybe I'm
overthinking the problem and I'd be better off just defining a bunch of
C_I_STRING attributes and being done with it.

Opinions? Suggestions? Anybody tried to do something like this before?
