Sorry, I missed part of the discussion.

What would the be the beneft of running winbind in the same process as smb 
or other services?

Personally I prefer separate processes for separate tasks. Generally makes 
things both more stable and easier to maintain once one has got the 
separation set correctly. Joining things in one process only because one 
can is not a valid reason to do so.
