Sorry. I must have misunderstood or misremembered (been too long). I
thought we agreed that we could provide an ID mapper that would compile
in the Samba code base (the piece we give back to samba) and then be
usable in the presence of our proprietary shared object library - the
rule of thumb being that the proprietary shared object library stands
alone, and is useful even if Samba is not around.

It doesn't matter though: I just want to do the right thing.  I
originally was going to do a Unix sockets interface too, but got shot
down as too complicated. But if everyone agrees that Simo's Unix socket
interface or that Michael's scripting approach is what is required for
compliance then I am happy with either.

But I still need to control the use of winbind_idmap.tdb. This I can
also do external to the main source tree and publish my changes on our
web site, but wouldn't it be nice if we all could use the same code in
the main branch.

No, this isn't, sorry. But I already went there and told you
guys this :-).
