Rainer, Eric,
Thank you very much for your feedback.

Yes a new rewritemap seems to be the solution.
type name : usr
functions : uid, gid
parameter : name or #uid

For example :
RewriteMap getuid usr:uid
RewriteMap getgid usr:gid

C functions getpwnam and getpwuid would do the job.

Is a pull request here the right method to proceed ?

Thank you very much,
