Define another XWiki SuperAdmin account

Superadmin is the system administrator account provided by Xwiki and he has always full access to the system.

Check documentation: Superadmin is disabled by default and his password can be modified in the xwiki.cfg file.

Now my problem: superadmin has 1,2,3…9 characters while my existing repository of users (custom application built on top of Oracle Internet Directory – LDAP server) only allows username with 8 chars.

I didnt want to lose the possibility to use superadmin, so I amended my authentication handler (see SSOAuthServiceImpl from previous post) to set as superadmin a different account (xwiki).
