I hope not :) [That one just begged for a comment].

Altough we don't always know if we can search smbpasswd,
as the passdb backend for samba will / should add support
for ldap, MySQL, tdb, etc.

Even tough the your idea is good, we might need to make sure that
the backends supports this kind of search (preferably case insenitive).

I'm sure the tdb case should be fine (we should always store the username
in lowercase)

Altough ldap could be any ldap server (Netscape, Microsoft (ActiveDirectory),
NDS, OpenLDAP) to just name the most known ones.

Does anyone know if ldap supports case-insensitive searches?
If so, we might be able to implement a passdb backend function
to search for a user.
