The nssldapd overlay is part of upstream OpenLDAP. If you
are bound by what's in RHELs then really extending Winbind doesn't
help you much either.

No. nscd also solves the problem of calling into nss_ldap
in the user context (i.e. permissions on the system keytab).
I'm just offering suggestions. Having winbindd deal with
other NIS maps seems a bit out of mainstream IMO. But it's not
really my call.
