WARNING: domain parameters about to disappear!

the following parameters are going to disappear fairly soon:

- domain admin users
- domain guest users
- domain groups
- domain admin group
- domain guest group


why?  because they will be replaced with:

- map groupname
- map aliasname

these two files will have the following (identical) format:

unixgroup	Well-known NT Group
unixgroup	NT_GROUP_NAME

example for the groupname map:
adm	Domain Admins
users	Domain Users

example for the aliasname map:
wheel	Administrators
users   Users

admins would be expected to use the "map username" functionality, which
already exists.

later i would like to extend the functionality of these three "map"
systems to include DOMAIN_NAME\username, bu t not for now...
