... and at least to me it starts to be real fun. getpwent is
mostly done, but before I do getgrent I will probably
completely re-work winbindd_cache.c. All this manual
marshalling with centry is not necessary anymore, we have
automatic marshalling. What I'd like to do is to have the
NDR marshalled parent->child request as the key into
winbindd_cache, and the child->parent response as the data.
All the cacheable requests are idempotent module the
sequence number, so this way we can get rid of all the
hand-marshalling in winbindd_cache.c easily.

Should be fixed now, thanks!
