basically yep.

you can do it the ugly way: keep a copy of the map in the user struct or
whereever that's later accessible in the rpc server code

or you can do it the clean way: redo the NT_USER_TOKEN struct to look more
like on NT and add security descriptors on SAM objects. I have drafted
something already. I'll work on it as soon as I'm done with the wins
replication code.

btw it would be cool if we could extand smbcacls to work with any objects
and not only files.

not if you do it cleanly.
