There is a LGPL client library (well library is probably doing it more
justice than it deserves) called wb_client.c which is used in the
NSS modules that talk to winbindd. I would think that would be a
preferable way of talking to winbindd rather then rewriting code
to talk the winbindd protocol.

Not unless they are related to authentication or user/group enumeration.
