Query AD to get Person object from one of its properties

The RequestApproval action can be assigned directly to an email address but that permits approval/rejection only through the Lazy Approval feature.  I'd like to allow my users to also be able to respond through SharePoint but for this I need to be able to retrieve the actual Person object from the UPS based on, say, the email address or the login name.  I can get a Person's properties from the Query AD action but I cannot get the Person from the properties.  Is there a way to do this within the workflow?


I tried defining a Person/Group workflow variable then using Set Variable based on one of its properties (it only allows to use Account Name but even that didn't work).  Thanks in advance.
