There's some confusion here.  The idmap_adex() doesn't have
anything to do with Likewise Cells.  It's just an rfc2307
idmap module with support for domain trusts.  The comments
in the code are misleading only because it was derived from
my original code at Likewise.

That said, if no one is using it, my suggestion is to remove
it on the basis that it is currently unmaintained.
