It's not possible to do that with a cron job or a
replicating LDAP server?

Part of this is there for a reason. We have tons of
scenarios we have to take care of, many of them for
compatibility. You for sure follow the samba at samba.org
mailing list, we still get bad complaints that
security=share works differently than it used to.

I REALLY don't want to mess with those code paths if there
are other alternatives around. Can't you hide that in some
winbind module or so?
