using a file with the following structure may be a way.

win_group_name:win_group_type:unix_group:unix_users separated by comas

Domain Admins:Builtin,Domain:root,sys,admgrp:root,admin,simo,kevin,jean
Domain Users:Builtin,Domain:users:
Local Users:Builtin,Local:users:
Everyone:Builtin,Local:ALL /* special tag all means really all groups
and users
Authenticated Users:Builtin,Local:users:root

This may be ported tu TDB and LDAP on the new rewrite.
