Well you'll run into the problem that people will do fooBAR123, then 
fooBAR124, ... at least on some of them.

We run into this problem and the only way I can see is to write a module 
in samba that plugs into the password changes function to forbid too 
close from the previous one password. Not too easy (otherwise I would 
have done it already), but I think it's doable.
