Alternative Auth Methods.

Are there any alternative authentication methods for Samba? Other 
thank the smbpasswd file?  I'd like to do PostgreSQL or mySQL. Why?
Because I can do Exim/IMAP/POP3 Apache/Zope with SQL, if I could do
Samba it would wrap it up into one nice DB for authentication.

It does not have to be much, just the ability to get the data from
a SQL query rather than a flat file query.

Anyone interested in working on this if it does not exist?
