Removing (get|set)-auth-user from wbinfo

Hi folks,

I'm currently trying to get wbinfo in samba3 and samba4 to use the same code.
I've successfully eliminated all uses of lp_ functions. Those have a different 
API in S3 and S4 and also were a violation of abstraction layers.

Now, in my quest to make wbinfo only use libwbclient functions I've stumbled 
over the --get-auth-user and --set-auth-user parameters. Those call into 
passdb/secrets.c to get/set "the authorised user for winbindd access", 
whatever that is used for.

Is there any problem with me removing those?
