Hmmm.... Would it be possible to provide a shell or perl script wrapper
which can behave like smbpasswd on behalf of samedit? This seems like the
path of least resistance if it is possible. This leaves current users in
the position to decide when they get rid of smbpasswd.

Sorry, haven't played with samedit to know if this is possible -- haven't
had time.
