Classicupgrade would only handle the initial import, not later addition
of users which is the more frequent case here. But idmap_ldb:use
rfc2307 = yes seems to work fine, and it seems to be a lot less ugly
than fiddling with idmap.ldb.

I'll try to get samba-tool to create the RFC2307 attributes and send a
patch if its not too ugly.
