I've not looked into it but are you thinking in terms of what would
allow a member server to self-issue a certificate in its own name etc?

A CA manager is a complex beast (once CRLs or OCSP etc start happening)
so I wonder if we should bridge any interfaces we need to supply to an
existing project.

But beyond that have a go I suppose!  I've not heard of any other
efforts that are Samba-integrated.
