Those examples approach from the group's perspective; are there any such examples for doing this from the user's perspective? I have tried some of Microsoft's super-special-secret memberOf hacks to pull nested group memberships per-user, but it wound up choking our DCs to the floor.

Take a look at the ldapwiki site. Active Directory supports a nested group query. If using an LDAP product from a different vendor, you will need to find a different way.

Is there a way to obtain memberOf for nested groups memberships?
