I have been working on a first draft on how I would like to change the
current IDmap subsystem.

The design and API described in it are the result of the discussions we
had at the CIFS conference as well on IRC.

The internal set of interfaces is not yet defined but will resemble the
one used in winbindd.

Comments, corrections or critics are very welcome,
I will post new revisions of the document at the same URL as I dig into
the topic, this week.

This is it:
