Lets just put to bed the PAC nonsense.  Yes, it did take a bit of fuss
for MS to release the format, but even Samba3 ships with a PAC parser of
sorts, and Samba4 ships with one that could even be described as

I wish Luke the best of luck, while working hard to obsolete his product
with Samba4 ;-)

Actually, while we are on the subject of blatant plugs, I will again
mention the changes that made it into Heimdal, to use Samba passwords in
Heimdal kerberos.  With that, a few tweaks in LDAP (to force simple
binds to use kerberos passwords) and a Samba3 domain, you actually get
what I think is a pretty good cross-platform identity management server
:-).  I actually have that combination in production :-)
