in your ldap code, you make the distinction between a "machine" account
and a "user" account. can you remove this distinction? machine acounts
_are_ user accounts, and "machine" accounts is a misleading name: they are
actually a subset of trust accounts. therefore, can we refer to them as
"trust" accounts from now?
the uint16 acct_ctrl member, when the ACB_WKSTRUST bit is set, correctly
and uniquely identifies the account as a workstation trust account.
there just happens to be an additional (redundant but "visual-in-text")
method to identify a trust account: it ends with $.
