You're right, I would really like to get rid of that

Please excuse my comments here, I haven't been in winbind
for ages, so it is really not up to me to propose anything,
but I would attack that in a different way: I find the
different flags in the winbindd_domain structure a bit
confusing, I would much rather like to see a feature-based
set of flags like "Should we enumerate domain local groups"
an so on. The current way from my point of view obscures the
fact what policy decisions are taken based on the different

On the other hand, I would really like to give the admin the
option to fully go without Kerberos and LDAP in winbind. I
know, you can always compile Samba without LDAP, but I would
prefer a runtime option here.
