I suspect WINBIND requires a moderately functional RPC client library. So,
it probably depends on whether that will exist in 2.2 (I suspect not).

Is Tim Potter on this list?  Hmmm...well I guess not.

So far, no work has been done to back port winbind from 
HEAD to SAMBA_2_0.  IIRC winbind was slated for 3.0 as well.
I'll check with Tim and see what the deal is.
