The samba users still need a unix user so unix file permissions can be
enforced. What you can do, that would be pretty insecure and I don't really
recommend, is have a general smbuser in /etc/passwd with no home dir or
shell and in all your shares on the samba side "force user = smbuser". So
everyone would effectively be reading/writing files as the same user.
