Actually, it looks like this may have already been provisioned for in a
generic way via winbindd with WINBINDD_SET_MAPPING.  It allows you to
create/change mappings, and is plumbed through to libwbclient, but not
yet to wbinfo.

idmap_tdb_remove_mapping() is also implemented, but has no corresponding
winbindd dispatch function. 

Filing out these features on the wbinfo -> winbindd path seems like the
cleaner approach, though I'd also like it to handle many-to-one
sid-to-id mappings which is a little tricky.
