Hi Jim, Anthony,

It's nice to see that someone is working on the idmap backend stuff :-)

But I'm REALLY NOT FINE with a parameter name 'winbind backend' for this!!!
winbind backends are RPC and ADS.

we should name this parameter 'idmap backend' or something like that.

please, please change this fast! :-)
otherwise it will be bad to change this parameter because everyone has it 
in his smb.conf
and has to change this.

also we should seperate the idmap stuff from winbind,
so that we can use it in pdb and other subsystems of samba also.
