Excellent.. however we are attempting to try and put together an LDAP solution here at ML to keep a centralized database of SID->UID mappings.. than letting the LDAP client make calls against the
database for a UID.. what we would need is a backend script/program to make calls against winbind using wbinfo.. and than passing that info off to the LDAP server.. not sure if that would work.. but
it is something management here has been talking about asking me to implement..

Yes it's planned..... Not sure on timeframe though.
We'll be spending lots more time on getting 3.0.x
out in the next few months.
