Whenever I wanted to do something like that, I generally did it using
kadmin.local or the library equivalent on a KDC replica rather than trying
to do it over protocol.

I'm not a huge fan of the kadmin network protocol.  It works, mostly, but
whenever I was doing something very complicated, I usually had better luck
writing some code that could run on a KDC against a local database (I
never used LDAP, but the same principle mostly applies) and then wrapping
my own protocol around whatever that operation wanted to return.
