Granular recovery for Active Directory and LDAP

Brief description:  Granularity for restoring a single item for MS Active Directory or LDAP.

Faster restores of individual objects instead of restoring the entire organization

How:  Ensure the GRE capability is simple and easy to use.  Would prefer if it is part of the DP UI itself.

The priority here should be Active Directory. I don't see non-Active Directory LDAP being widely used. In addition Data Protector currently supports backup and restore of Active Directory using the Disk Agent (/CONFIGURATION object) or the MSVSS integration. GRE should be possible from both backup methods.
