There's idmap_rid and idmap_hash. Both are deterministic.
One is manual config, the other one is very likely to
produce collisions. You just can't squeeze SIDs into a
32-bit space deterministically and bidirectional. If you
can, I think that would be worth a Fields Medal.

Maybe now that we get richacls we should ask for 128 bit
uids. Problem solved.
