I was under the impression that this already exists and is
in the current smbd source, but that the smbpasswd file
made no provision for it.  I thought that the LDAP backend
was going to utilize this, but that changing the format
of the smbpasswd file was considered too destructive.

Does anyone actually know what the status of this is?
Did I just make that up?
