Description : nss module to handle unknown uids

nss-unknown is a small library to gracefully handle unknown uids

This small library is very useful in host <=> guest container
environments. Under certian circumstances, admins can have UIDs/GIDs

We primarily use this library in our environment in the guest
containers. Thus I intend to maintain it for the forseeable future.
