I'm not sure I see the need for this.  I understand the ldap password sync 
option that would update userPassword, but that would only seem necessary 
if you were intending to syncrhonrize Samba & "some one object class" 
password.  Why add userPassword to a sambaAccount object?  It would seem 
better to keep the userPassword in another object (e.g. posixAccount)
so that the synchronization would really matter.

Make sense?
