Again: The only reason that holds against forking is the
ability to change mappings on the fly and to deactivate the
local cache.

BTW, thinking about it... Why would a central daemon not be
able to map a SID to a unix ID? The whole point of the idmap
range is that we are free to allocate from that. This is
another assumption quite deep in the code. Thus negative
hits happen exactly once per SID. What am I missing here?
