I decided to go with %(...) since that fits easily with the current
convention of %[A-z] and %$(...). A preliminary patch is attached.
The patch addresses several issues that were raised:
* provides a framework for %(....) long variable names
* adds support for the %(DomainSID) which can be used in
'write list', 'read list', & 'admin users'
* replaces the standard_sub_XXX() functions with wrappers
around the alloc_sub_xxx() counterparts in order to remove
the duplicated code.
