always think before write...

What we could do is to use a virtual idmap_plugin, let's say:

	idmap backend = ad_sfu
and from thenon completly ignore idmap and do all work inside winbindd using
the sfu-schema ourself. That way, we would get rid of the new parameter.

Does that sound better? It would safe us more LDAP-queries, btw.
