Remap LDAP Name Field?

We are using FB integrated with our AD with great success.  However, the Name displayed within FB is our company's cryptic login name.  I have been arguing with my windows administrators to try and change the Name field to be something more human readable, but they are refusing because they don't want the impact may be on other systems which rely on this.

When I look at all the fields available on our AD accounts, I see several other possibilities which would display our names.  Is there a way I can just repoint FB to look at another property instead?

I have tried manually overwriting the sFullName inside the FB database, but that gets resynched and lost everytime I reconnect.

Any ideas how I can get our names displayed within FB?

Thanks, Chris

Sorry, Chris.  We look at, and refresh on login, the Full Name field in LDAP and don't really have a way to point it at any other field. I'm afraid this nonstandard implementation is something we can't adjust for.

But I'll enter a bug to see if we can expose LDAP stuff in the plug-in architecture, or if this can be done via source code change.
