Alright then, unless I'm misunderstanding our goals are different. What
I want is for Horde to use one unique identifier for associating a user
with data (prefs, groups, etc.), but another thing for logins and
displaying. In my scenario the user would never see the id that horde
uses to identify them, they'd only see some pretty string (which is also
unique to them, but needs to be easily changeable). So it seems that
what I probably want is to only have the frombackend() hook called
wherever the user name is to be displayed. Then the frombackend() hook
will take the users id (which is what horde is using for storing prefs
and other things) and convert it to some pretty string, like a user name.
Guess I'll need to do some customization to get that to work, thanks.
