So, what can a program that can modify the SIDs in NTUSER.DAT do?

OK, I have now committed all the changes to allow you to modify the SIDs.

You need to make with 'make bin/profiles' and you will need to run the 
command twice, once for the owner SID and once for the group sid.

Also, bear in mind that I have not tested that this works yet. I will do 
that tonight. However, it would be interesting to see if it does before
