Interresting ! I understand why you want such a feature, but I disagree on
the technical side.

By using nss_ldap, you can do that already.

To clear things, we (Gerry and myself mainly) want to support LDAP to
replace the smbpasswd file. We don't want to replace the Unix security
with direct calls to LDAP from Samba.

The first line of the future ldap.txt file will propably be: "If you want
full LDAP support, you need nss_ldap and pam_ldap"
