Yep.  It's used to manage ACLs.  Domain users/groups can be added to ACLs,
so we present a list and let them choose.

Consequently, we need to authenticate against any domain, but be able to
limit the list to a reasonable size.  

Currently, the list from wbinfo -u is just the domain we joined or *all*
domains.  Some other options would be useful.
