this patch adds a special filter type for enumarations instead of
using 'name=*'. I think this makes the code easier to read and
understand, allows the usage of a '*' in user or group names

Theareason why we used the name and * in the name field is because
originally we wanted to allow to search using a smart filter. So that
through the infopipe you could do searches like: all users starting by
A, with a filter like "A*".
But I think we can work on it when we will actually decide to implement
this stuff. Meanwhile, although I haven't reviewed the patch carefully,
the general direction looks quite ok.
