fyi the way that this will be used is to have:

encrypted passwords = no
update encrypted = yes

for a few days, have everyone log in with their clear-text password, and
a private/smbpasswd file will automatically be generated.

then switch to

encrypted passwords = yes
update encrypted = no

and voila.

if you were feeling _really_ adventurous you could have:

include = smb.conf.%M

and have one file smb.conf.MACHINE_CT (clear-text for short)

encrypted passwords = no
update encrypted = yes

and another file smb.conf.MACHINE

with the other stuff in...
