BTW, I just come from a customer who was bitten by 3.0.20 removing the winbind
local accounts. We probably have to be more elaborate in the release notes, but
I think I'm gonna commit that parameter including changing behaviour.

Yes, I know, you have to patch your version of Samba with 'ldap filter'. But I
would very much argue that removing that parameter was the right decision.
