I've already achieved this result the "proper" way by adding a privilege
infrastructure in trunk.
he patch has been long in production and works very well, plus it make
you possible to selectively give the "join the machine to the domain"
privilege with out the need to give away full control on the client.

The patch is not big, and sets up an infrastructure to add more
privileges (think of printing related privileges).

Would you considering adding that instead of this hack ?
