  For now, yes.

  See "man unlang".

  In v3, using "&" for attribute names is strongly recommended.

  The background reason is that the attribute ldapdomain1-Ldap-Group is created *after* the server reads the configuration files.  So the "if" statement is comparing two text strings, and not an attribute and a string.

  Using "&" forces the parser to treat "&ldapdomain1-Ldap-Group" as an attribute name.
