I was thinking about wbinfo, but I forgot that after creating libwbclient 
wbinfo in S3 changed again. Last I looked at it, I had the differences 
between S3 and S4 down to a couple of includes in the header file, but now 
they're pretty different again.

Anyway, nsswitch/winbind_nss_* seem like good candidates. Looking at 
winbind_nss_linux.c, they're pretty identical, not counting the thread-safety 
changes that were not ported to the S4 copy.

The other utilities will need some extra steps, like getting a unified netapi 
API for net. For a later milestone, I guess.
