Update: on a whim I searched the source tree for "unknown domain" and
was whisked directly to the make_user_info_map() function which seems
precisely the function I want to modify.  I am going to try to add the
above-described feature and may post a patch as early as tonight if it
works, so others caught in our situation might find a way out.
