/**
 * A mapping between addressbook properties and ldap attributes.
 *
 * Each addressbook property can map to one or more attributes.  If
 * there is no entry in preferences for a field, the getters generally
 * return null; empty strings are passed through as usual. The intent is
 * that properties with a non-zero number of attributes can be overridden for
 * a specific server by supplying a zero-length string.  For this to work,
 * most callers are likely to want to check for both success and a 
 * non-empty string. 
 *
 * Note that the one exception to this pattern is getAttributes, which
 * throws NS_ERROR_FAILURE for non-existent property entries, since
 * XPConnect doesn't like returning null arrays.
 *
 * Note that each LDAP attribute can map to at most one addressbook
 * property.  The checkState method is a useful tool in enforcing
 * this.  Failure to enforce it may make it impossible to guarantee
 * that getProperty will do something consistent and reasonable.
 *
 * Maybe someday once we support ldap autoconfig stuff (ie
 * draft-joslin-config-schema-11.txt), we can simplify this and other
 * code and only allow a property to map to a single attribute.
