Migration from Samba-TNG-alpha 2.6.1 to Samba-2.2.x

first of all, this is a message corresponding to a thread named similar in
tng-users mailinglist (tng-users at samba-tng.org).
I am successfully running a samba-tng server at work for quite a year now
but now I want to get to the "official" version (2.2.x) again for increased
stability, namely in file locking issues. The samba-tng server is holding about
35 users along with their samba passwords and profiles now (Win2k mainly,
some 9x/ME), so I don't want to lose the passwords and profiles during
migration, if possible.
So I know where the domain SID is stored in tng and from what algorithm the
user RIDs are created (and that they are stored nowhere).
Now my important question:

Could you please if it is possible to migrate the SID and RIDs into an
Samba-2.2.x server? Maybe there is an identical file holding the SID or the
algorithm for the RID is the same?

Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated,

Thanks in advance
