Okay, I am sending this to the whole list because I wanted to give
some reasons for my vote.

Short answer: I think it is a good thing.

Long answer: I dislike the extra overhead of having to grab the latest
TNG sources, compile and install everything and to get pam_ntdom
working. However, I do like the idea that my system works in as
similar a manner as possible to NT as far as login is concerned. I
think pam_ntdom is a good marriage of the Linux and NT methods of
doing authentication and since we are marrying Linux and NT this is
good thing overall.
