idmap SQL backend

My site uses samba 3.0.x domain member servers in a Win2K AD domain. We'd
like to use a shared idmap, but it seems overkill to run an LDAP server
solely for this.  (Also the windows admins won't support extending the AD
schema for use as the LDAP idmap backend.)

I wouldn't mind writing code for idmap to a postgres/mysql back-end.  
I searched and couldn't find anything similar; but am I reinventing the 
wheel here, or is it a bad idea?

Just looking for some feedback before I jump into this.
