btw...do we really need WINBIND_PAM_CONTACT_TRUSTDOM as a flag for testing
whether we deal with trusted users. I don't see any real value in being
able to set "allow trusted domains = no" on a per call basis. Can you
give me an example of when it would be useful? Thanks. Or even better,
add a comment in the code about it next time.
