If so, it is probably via some obscure RPC call.

Not with normal SMB calls.  This would require something that talks to the
appropriate DLL on the DC side.  If you are running a W2K Domain, you
might be able to do this with LDAP calls.  No promises...

...but it is stored differently and accessed differently, at least under 
WindowsNT.  Again, if it's a W2KDomain then you probably want to look into 
LDAP.  If it's an NT Domain then it will be an obscure and probably 
undocumented RPC call if it exists at all.

Right, since we don't have a complete MS-RPC architecture built and we are
not implementing LDAP.  jCIFS really isn't the right tool for this
