Do we really need to specify both a user and a group ?
In other projects specifying the user and using its primary group is
I think allowing to specify both can lead to potential issues if the
user is not member of the specified group.
Unless there is an actual need to specify the group explicitly I would
simplify and allow to specify only the user.
I can't seem to find where sss_user_from_string() is defined, is it in
a previous patch not yet committed to master ?
Why do we need this function when we can call directly getpwnam() ?
