Hi Andrew,

Sorry for the long pause after our last conversation. I've been
working on several proposals which are quite related to each other.

The first one that I want to discuss with you is about storing
SID in string format:

That is a prerequisite for utilizing DNA plugin for SID allocation:

And just so you know, I'm also looking for a way to resolve the
conflicts between AD schema and standard LDAP schema:

That is a prerequisite for deploying Samba into an existing FDS
instance which contains standard LDAP schema:

Also, the FDS support is currently still not working because there
are still some issues related to SASL and schema. I'm working with
the DS team to get this fixed by DS 1.2.3. Here's some info about it:

So for now I'd like to get your opinion about the first proposal.
Is this pretty much in line with what we've discussed before?
