I've tested a Windows Vista domain join (selected because it's an RPC
based join), and it all works perfectly. 

The only issue that remains is that because the source3/smbd code is
tied to getting all users from getpwnam() (to confirm they are local
unix users), I need to make winbindd produce NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS

I have a number of patches outstanding, some of which I'm working with
folks to merge, and others that I'll propose soon.  Those I'm currently
looking to have merged are in my s3compat-for-review branch. 

Once we get those in, I would like to discuss how and when to merge the
remaining bulk of the s3compat branch.  As I've now proved that s3compat
can achieve it's aims, I would like to get most of the s3compat patches
into the master tree in the next little while. 

There remains much to do - in particular the conflicting lp and DEBUG
systems, but there is also a lot in common, and I've been very glad to
build on that.  I hope that the s3compat effort can be another
foundation, like the Franky and merged build efforts before, to a single
Samba infrastructure.
