Using DDNS as a backend for WINS?

We've just added a dynamic subdomain on our DNS servers for W2K's
Active Directory stuff.
While I can't comment on the AD stuff, the DDNS (on BIND 8) seems to
work nicely (so far - fingers crossed!) and replicates well between
our DNS servers.
Has anyone done any work on turning WINS lookups (of all record types)
into DNS lookups, and WINS [de]registrations into DNS updates? [Since
this would solve the lack of WINS replication in Samba problem.]
I see Samba can now fire off commands when WINS registrations happen,
is there something I can slot in to do DDNS updates and lookups in a
specific domain (e.g. 'wins.mydomain.com').
Apologies if there's been something about this already and I missed it.
Thanks in advance,
