The link between passdb and the rpc_samr* functions is 
there currently because I did a quick a dirty replace of all
the smbpasswd lookups when commiting the new passdb functions.
I agree there should be no link between parsing prs_struct
and the user/group account storage.

I can clean them up or you can.  Which ever one of has the 
time. :-)
