That was my understanding, too - as far as I've understood the message, 
that is not the case (as he has clientids in his old scheme and I assume 
differenct clients have different domains).

My understanding was that this was the point he wanted to avoid.
Apart from this point, I agree ;-)

But because of these point, I'd dig in the perdition archives or ask on 
their mailinglist. It seems that Perdition ist well suited for this kind of 
  - (see the 
regexp section)

Hope that is a startig point.
By the way: if you find a solution it would be great if you'd post it. I 
will need something similar soon ;-)
