[Samba] Using Virtual Users with Samba

I have finally got Samba up and running in a basic config.  But I was
wondering, most modern UNIX/LINUX software these days (qmail, proftpd,
postfix, and more) allow you to get user to login and then have the
authentication come from some other method, therefore removing the need for
users to have system accounts on the server.

Is it possible to have a similair "virtual" user system with samba.  Perhaps
other users would be interested in such a setup.
