Autorid is made to combine the efficiency of rid with the ease of
configuration of tdb. tdb generates a lot of entries in its database,
autorid is very small. For me, if we could, we would make autorid the
default these days. But this would break too many existing tdb default
setups. Of course, wherever people have SFU maintained in AD, that is
clearly preferrable. For everybody else, I think autorid is just a
great idea. But that's mostly me :-)
