Does that mean that the only problem that you have with the approach
used is that it relies upon knowning the domain and user or group name? 
If so, would it make more sense to pass the sid to allocate_id() and the
plug-in would be responsible for allocating a uid/gid based upon that? 
Presumably in my idmap_files plug-in this would mean that the fields
would be "sid:id".
