We've setup Storage Manager at a customer site where student objects are created with their student number. To prevent having thousands of homedir folders in the root of a volume, they decided to put these homedirs in a folder which has the left first three numbers of the student object.

cn=12300 homedir is <homedirvol>\123\12300
cn=12423 homedir is <homedirvol>\124\12423

Other than creating a lot of polices and groups to pull this off with SM today, is there a nice way to do this?
I suppose we could do like <homedirvol>\{LEFT(%CN,3)} for the folder path.
