More insanity. ID_OTHER is #defined but never used anywhere.
What is ID_EMPTY for ? Where is it used ? Tell me why we are
mapping to anything other than user or group ?

ID_QUERY_ONLY|ID_CACHE_ONLY seem to be flags controlling
backend actions - can they not be taken care of by the
backends themselves ?

This code needs completely rewriting. That's probably
too much to do on the 4th of July but I'm taking a
chainsaw to this mess.
