Super Smarticon

this code, in a smarticon, is an invaluable tool for administrators.

Note: To use the Switch ID function, you must have a place where you keep
backup copies of created ID's.

You also need to create a new database and place the agents listed below into
it, I use 2 custom navigators to make the screen look more professional when
"Check Groups" and "Switch ID" are used, they are not needed.
