Something can be broken in multiple ways.  Broken
in design or broken in function.  The code works in
function but may be broken in design.  The setup you
outlined wasn't part of the original requirements :-)

The main reason IIRC for not querying winbindd was
the fact that historically winbind blocked.  But with your
new implementation (and even later versions) this is not
as much of a concern.

So if you want to ping winbindd and ask if the domain is
a trusted one, that sounds like a good idea to me.
And then trustdom_cache is just used for smbd with no
winbindd right ?
