[quietly sidestepping SURS flamewars because AD stores the entire SID
_and_, generally, POSIX UID number and GID]

My status is that, with the exception of understanding the encoding of
a couple of attributes -- namely, objectSid (kind of important, yes!) 
and dBCSPwd/unicodePwd -- things are mostly working. There seems to be
some weird stuff happening that can send the passdb backend into an
infinite loop, though, which I believe Luke has noticed as well.

So... I guess the upshot is that I'm going to have to implement an
LDAP backend for samrd, but I think I might just wait until things
settle down a bit there (do they ever?) as I need an excuse for a
break :-)
