While you are at it ( i guess ldapsam is already capable of most if not all 
functionality required ), please include a means for specifying [different] 
base RIDs for users and machines.

The situation leading to this is as follows:
- configured ldapsam, enable rid algorith, idmap account range = 10000-20000
- created initial users in directory, posixAccount
- joined machines to the domain, NUA operation

now, if we want to add new users, we are in the situation that the RIDs 
they would be assigned are already being used by machines. Therefore, i 
propose separating the RID ranges for machines and users ( though it is 
different from what Win does )

All comments/suggestions/etc appreciated
