I'm nopt trying to be rude here, but....
>> idmap domains = FOO
>> idmap config FOO:backend = rid
>> idmap config FOO:read_only = yes
>> idmap config FOO:range = 1000-100000
> Yep, should. But not.

I made a conscious choice *not* to support syntax of idmap_rid
that was never officially supported anyways. So when I say
"idmap backends" is still supported, what I *mean* is that
officially supported syntax is still supported. Maybe someone
else wants to step up to the plate on this one, but I'm not
fixing what is currently working by design. I suggest you
contact whoever made the packages for you.
