"+" is nice because shells don't interpret it as a special character. "\"
has the advantage of looking like how Windows displays domain names, and if
you need to parse usenames and feed them to smbclient or a similar program
they will work unaltered. Smbclient is ignorant of the seperator setting
and won't understand anything but "\" or "/" as far as I know.
So really, it's a matter of taste. I use "+", personally.

Subject: any suggestion on winbind separator?
The default winbind separator is '\', some documents use '+'. Which one
is better? Will '/' be OK? What's the advantage or side effect each one
has? If use '+' is better, why not use it as default?
Any suggestion will be appreciated.
