I think there is some way to mangle usernames so that there is a "+"
or other symbol where the "@" is now...
So the user would login as user+MyDomain.com.br, and the Windows
domain name could be something completely different...
Then, when you query the LDAP database for that user, you can replace
the "+" with the "@" symbol...
