Hi Rowland,

I'm sorry but those ranges are to small! I'm speaking of experience. Customer 
do copy and paste and then at one point they realize that the range they use 
is not big enough and they run into a problem. We need to avoid such things so 
the ranges need to be big enough that this can't happen.

Can we sattle on 10k for the global range:

	idmap config * : range          = 10000-19999

and for specific domain configs use a range of 1 million:

	idmap config MAIN : range       = 1000000 - 1999999

	idmap config TRUST1 : range       = 2000000 - 2999999
