My humble proposal would be to stop developing custom tools for squid
and friends and use published APIs (ie gssapi), take a look at gss-
ntlmssp, if you look at the winbind integration code and the commit
messages it should be clear how winbindd interfaces are inadequate and
should be changed. If not I can definitely write up something.
