This looks OK so far, but we really should have some test on the local
setting of idmap_ldb:use rfc2307 to avoid total user confusion.   (I
personally think that having this option creates more problems than it

Finally, we need tests written for this and included in the testsuite,
so we don't subtly break this in the future.  (the testing of the actual
getpwnam call will be difficult, but at least the command line options
can be easily tested).
