We do actually have it.  It is in nsswitch/libwbclient/tests and is
called via smbtorture as winbind.wbclient.

It covers a reasonable portion of the protocol, but also needs work.  So
far it only run in make test against the s3dc, I've got patches to make
it more general (I'll post for review shortly), but even then it seems
to only work directly on a DC right now.  In particular, it resets (and
not does reset back) the supplied password, and I can't figure out why.

Improving this would be a great boost to the AD DC and trusted domains
efforts, as it would further validate that the winbindd changes really
don't break things.
