We need to re-examine it along side the LDAP work going on.
My thoughts are that by enabling Samba to use a Windows 2000
AD compatible schema, this will be the first step in 
plugging Samba into a native Windows 2000 domain.  Of course
there are other parts as well.

I am planning on starting the thread regarding the 
passdb / groupdb later today with a summary of the 
existing APIs in HEAD and TNG.  We can beat this around 
and decide what is good and what should be changed.

Cheers, jerry
