Me too, at this stage.

I've talked about this briefly with Steven Gallagher but got side
tracked onto other things. I need to get back to that discussion.
I suspect that what will be needed is a lookup_sssd.so on the part of
autofs that talks to sssd and asks for map records and then handles the
various structural cases. Map entry specific (or data specific) handling
shouldn't be done in sssd. That doesn't mean that the task will be
simple for sssd either since there are a number of LDAP schema maps may
be stored in, and possibly stored outside of any of these schema but
that probably shouldn't be supported.
We need to get back to this conversation later in October.
