Till someone does the crypto work, we don't know (as in prove, with
smbtorture tests) the correct formats.  Also, I don't see any point DES
'encrypting' and 'decrypting' the data for Samba's internal use, so we
have to map anyway.

That's why I favour having 'samba' attributes for these things, in the
best format for our use.
