I kind'a hoped that you'd think differently on this issue when ldap is involved.
Basicly what happens is that from making samba a tool that you can administer
you whole network on and also you can get away from the old add UNIX user add
sambauser too a unified system. I realy wish you guys could come around on this.

Anyhow, tough luck I guess. How about making it a config option? Beeing able to
add the posix part of a sambauser wold make samba far more usefull.

Anyhow, keep up the good work.
