[Zope-PAS] User ID mangling question

So I'm going through the LDAPMultiPlugin right now trying to make it 
work with the latest PAS and I'm noticing that some mangling behaviors 
have changed.

Specifically, the ID of the PropertiedUser is the mangled ID and not 
the ID the plugin itself has returned. When "validate" is called the 
first step after extraction (which returns the unmangled user IDs as 
seen by my plugin) is a call to _findUser. In _findUser the users are 
built with a call to _createUser, and that user object now carries a 
mangled ID. So in the next step, looking up user properties, my plugin 
gets a user with an ID that is not the one it knows about and returns 

I might have missed some discussion here, it's possible that my plugin 
does something wrong. Is a plugin supposed to know how to deal with a 
mangled ID or did something else go wrong?
