mod_ntlm_winbind needs to be replaced with a wrapper around the ntlm_auth
component of Samba HEAD (soon to be merged to 3.0).  This will provide a 
long-term, stabe interface to NTLMSSP and NT domain authenticaion, even as
samba's internal interfaces change.

See utils/ntlm_auth.c in Samba HEAD for what we have at the moment - currently
it is designed to support Squid, but I'm working with thm on slightly adjusting
the 'helper protocol'.
