There was a plugin interface posted to samba-technical a little while
back.  The author didn't get back to me with the last lot of mods I
requested (or I lost the e-mail), but it was in pretty good shape by
that stage anyway.

You could go with that, and write a plugin for it - I'm working with
some others on SAM database design and I expect that the sid->uid
interface will come up next.

The people invloved are 'kai', 'metze', 'idra' and I on the
#samba-technical IRC channel - irc.openprojects.net.  (Which, much like
the samba-technical list, is not a 'answer your questions' forum, but
has been very useful in enhancing developer interaction - both inside
and outside the team).
