      Description

      When profile ID number field is used to keep users synchronized with an external source, could be useful to enforce its uniqueness.

      Comparison should be done in a case insensitive way but avoiding to change the case of the values (such as for Username) because synchronization process may need to read and reuse them in a unknown way.

      To maintain compatibility, ID number uniqueness must be an optional feature disable by default.
      There is a similar option concerning email address, allowaccountssameemail, that works symmetrically since duplicate of email address is forbidden by default.
