The _User Mapping Manager_ interface provides services for mapping between a 'user identity' as used when talking to an external authentication provider,
colas@0
    34
an internal TWiki canonical user ID, and the displayed name used to identify the user in TWiki. 
colas@0
    35
This is the default <nop>TWikiUserMapping in which user information is stored in TWiki topics - one per user, and then any mapping needed is done using the
colas@0
    36
<nop>TWikiUsers topic in the %MAINWEB%.
