I found this objectClass in samba somewhere,  it's basically just an object 
that holds a gidNumber and a uidNumber value.  When my add_user script runs,  
it will first find this object,  grab the values,  create the user,  then 
increment them as needed.

objectClasses: ( UnixIdPool-oid NAME 'UnixIdPool' SUP top STRUCTURAL MUST ( cn
  $ gidNumber $ uidNumber ) X-ORIGIN 'user defined' )
