We effectively do that with the "password server" parameter, although
plainly that won't do for "security = domain" -- but Win9x/ME don't really
do domain membership anyway.

Samba pretty much follows the NT model, though -- which it should.  I don't
think it's worth messing with emulating Win9x in any particular way; that
way lies madness.
