Thanks Jerry - also a flexible approach.

BTW mine is just an LGPL'd thin wrapper external "C" calls to a
proprietary shared object library you get when you buy CDC.  Sounds like
that is not going to pass the GPL compliance test?

I think the two major bones 1) how to write an ID mapper that does not
violate the GPL, and 2) whether or not external mappers get to control
if winbind_idmap.tdb is to be used, which Michael's approach does not
seem to address.

Before things get to deep, please review Michael Mastacci's patch
(I was supposed to but have not had a chance yet):
