While I still don't see your point, it came up to me that in the idmap
rewrite we may want to possibly have different idmap backend for
For example we may be joined to an AD domain that trusts a samba domain.
We may want to use idmap_ad for the accounts on the AD domain while
using the unixinfo pipe or ldap for the samba domain. I understand that
this means the domains may end up to have overlapping uids/gids if
poorly managed. But this have to be controlled by the admins, we can
simply set "filter" ranges to help out admins not to mess up things too
