I've been busy with building support for MySQL in samba, but why isn't it 
possible to use samba, encrypted passwords and PAM? I know PAM doesn't return 
an encrypted password, but can't we encrypt the password we get from PAM ?

It would solve many things if we could use these three easy things together, 
since all PAM modules would become available then(under Linux and Solaris).
