Well, the last time this was asked, I said I recalled it being a
function of the password storage mechanism, not the server process.
I understood that the smbpasswd file did not support this, and
thereby Samba did not normally.  I think I heard that if you were
using an LDAP backend you _might_ be able to trigger this, but
I can't confirm this.

No ever corrected me the last time I said this, so if this is
wrong, I hope someone will speak up now.
