This is Samba4.

Kai:  What is the best auth module to use from ntlm_auth in Samba4?
With your recent work, I see there is now "winbind_wbclient" alongside
"winbind" (messaging based) and "winbind_samba3".  

Does winbind_wbclient work yet?  Any idea if winbind_samba3 still

What I'm getting at is that if we use one of "winbind_wbclient" or
"winbind_samba3" we should avoid the need to set up the messaging (which
is root-only).
