Good points on not breaking existing behavior.  I've modified the patch
to use a new --verbose switch in wbinfo to obtain the additional trust

"wbinfo -m" and "wbinfo --all-domains" will return a newline separate
list of trusted domains as before.  "wbinfo --verbose -m" will return
the pretty printed list of domains with additional trust information.

Thanks for the input.  I decided to stick with the '\' separated text
fields for now, partly because it serves my needs of also making this
work on our modified 3.0.x branch where the ndr_print_* functions don't
exist.  Also, I feel like proper layering would dictate the formatting
be handled by the utility and not the content provider.
