The long story is that I looked at th output of
mkpasswd ages ago, and was quite sure it did not
have the option `-d', anyway I got SID from the registry, so what.
Then I fooled around only with `mkgroup', and this one has
no switch to limit the output.
Just seconds *after* I sent the mail it occured to me to look
at `mkpasswd --help'... sigh. (The email-list search I did before did not
reveal anything useful, though).
There is, however, a minor bug, or mismatch between
`mkpasswd/group' and `id'. The former happily output uids and
gids larger than 0xffff, while `id' apparently only uses 16 bit.
