I've pushed some more fixes to that branch, and my first untested and
almost certainly broken prototype of RPC forwarding between IRPC and
internal winbind RPC. I'm sure there is much broken, but finding that
will be a task for tomorrow :-)
What I need now is a way to, without breaking the rest of winbindd, on
an RODC get a binding handle to a full DC, and a way on a DC to get a
binding handle on the PDC. We need this when we forward a logon if the
password isn't in the local DB, or if the password is wrong.
