The parameter was removed because the code morphed into a form that
didn't use it. That was unfortunate, as at one point it actually fixed
your biggest bug-bear - the sambaPrimaryGroupSid.

So is everything else we have in LDAP. So I don't think 'can we trust
the data in ldap' is really the question. I agree that some of our more
insane admins might put completely conflicting data in ldap compared to
NSS, but we already have such a tight dependency there for groups
