can Samba have multiple personalities?

Is there any way to give Samba (or more accurately the machine on which
Samba is running) a "multiple personality"? I.e. it might advertise 
itself under different netbios names and offer different services (and
in particular might do encrypted passwords under one name, and not with
the other). You could run more than one Samba/config but I imagine there
would be a conflict on the ports.... just wondering - you could do some
neat stuff.
