[Samba] Samba4 xidNumber and idmap.ldb

Hi everyone

The s4 Domain Users group has xidNumber: 100 and the Linux users group 
has gidNumber=100. I've been mapping xidNumber <--> gidNumber for s4 
posix groups I've added myself, but this causes a name collision for 
Domain Users. This also has implications on Linux as local users have 
access to the group owned stuff of Domain users.

I've changed the xidNumber in idmap.ldb to 2000 and posix-ified my 
Domain Users correspondingly. Everything still works, well, it works for 
one test user at least.

1. Does xidNumber: 100 have any special meaning to windows?
2. To help readability, would it be possible to add a label to common 
entries in idmap to help us identify them?
