That should be fine.  All pam_stack should do is change the service from
samba to system-auth.

Its designed to make the admins life easier by giving them one config
file, not 15.  It will be very useful for winbind, as there will be one
file you can modify to supplant pam_pwdb with pam_winbind.  

(BTW, I would like to look into winbind, I currently only know the
superficial details, where abouts is it?  Its not obvious in CVS.)
