Why not make Samba LDAP aware, so that it can work with any LDAP server.
Then, put an LDAP interface on Winbindd, so it can be queried by any client.
Eventually, I think Winbindd would go away in favor of plain LDAP.

BTW, this is the suggested solution for distributed Winbindd which I hear
was in the works when I asked about this a year ago. I still like it.

I've got some LDAP code I started on with.  Looked like it would work 
technically.  Don't know about performance....
