I really like this approach. I am seeing more and more setups where
machines are being setup in exacly this configuration. It would be
nice to have winbindd use existing UID's instead of always creating
new ones for domain\user. With the existing "use default domain"
this is not sufficient when you are in a resource domain and all your
user names are in the auth domain.
