I note right now that the response to the whoami exop doesn't get
rewritten.  On the one hand this is nice, because then it is returning the
_real_ identity instead of the virtual; on the other, if the virtual
naming context is intended to entirely masquerade the real one, it should
be rewritten accordingly.  Maybe we should allow to configure this by
providing a "whoAmIDN" rewrite context.
