I'm always happy to improve my English grammar skills, can you say why
"supports" is wrong here or is this just a matter of taste here?

honestly I'm not entirely sure that no other idmap module can work with this
parameter also, for example idmap rfc2307. Actually if no idmap module is left
that supports this setting of winbind nss info, then the only parameter left
for this would be "template" and then we should actually remove this parameter
entirely. There might however also be third-party idmap modules, which make use
of this setting of "winbind nss info" and this is why I carefully chose the
words this way (for now).
