Wow. Thanks for that hint. I have patched rh73's samba-2.2.3a to include 
the winbind crap stuff and now have a wbinfo -a with both plaintext 
password authentication and challenge/response password authentication 

I already had a look at wbinfo.c and it seems trivial to me to modify 
wbinfo_auth_crap() so that it works in an apache module. I'll try to 
rewrite it so we don't run into another GPL violation. Expect results 
early next week.

Cheers, Jonny <jonny at>
