Argl.... And back are all the voyager problems. :-))

This needs fixing once and for all. I know you're busy this weekend, but just
as a reminder: One of the ideas I toyed with during voyager development was to
invent two domains UNIX-GROUPS and UNIX-USERS. These would be the fallback with
1:1 unix id to rid mapping for all ID's we don't find in our mapping.

For portability across installations we could even hard-code them.

Anybody else around having thoughts about this?
