bq. Would you contribute and do it yourself ? If so I can assign this to you.

Yes, Centrify is absolutely willing to do this for the Hadoop project and donate code. Thanks.

> We need a plugin API to translate long principal names (e.g. john.doe@EXAMPLE.COM) to
local OS user names (e.g. user123456) arbitrarily.
> For some organizations the name translation is straightforward (e.g. john.doe@EXAMPLE.COM
to john_doe), and the hadoop.security.auth_to_local configurable mapping is sufficient to
resolve this (see HADOOP-6526). However, in some other cases the name translation is arbitrary
and cannot be generalized by a set of translation rules easily.
