samba winbind + waffle: bringing SSO to humans

I was thinking that the implementation is a JNA-based piece of code included in waffle, rather than the other way around. 

That said, we would be totally open to re-licensing anything under whatever other license if, say, Samba was interested in including the project or parts of it into its distribution. Our goal is to help.


PS: It's so sad that licensing may prevent one piece of free open-source software to work with another ...

Looks like waffle is Eclipse licensed[0], which isn't compatible [1] with GPLv3. 
That might (or might not) be a problem here, depending on how it is implemented and licenses are interpreted.
