Can you implement the Samba PDC to use KRB5 (or KRB4) authentication?

The docs seem to imply that you can

>From docs/textdocs/DOMAIN.txt:

 Support is also not complete.  Samba does not yet support the sharing
 of the Windows NT-style SAM database with other systems.  However this is
 only one way of having a shared user database: exactly the same effect
 can be achieved by having all servers in a domain share a distributed NIS
 or Kerberos authentication database.

but I can find no explanation of how this can be set up.  Has someone
implemented this?
