I've done some work on pidentd prior to the new IP instances code using the
ability to intercept calls for all zones in the global zone with the
SO_ALLZONES socket option (which may not work anymore after the IP 
instances putback)

In that scenario, there's one pidentd which runs in the global zone and it
gets all identd calls for all zones which do not have exclusive IP 
instances; it is then able to resolve all identd queries but using 
nameservices relative to the global zone.
