   I know that there are possibilities for ldap and others, but a basic 
samba install should be using smbpasswd right now to the best of my 

   There is something else that could be tricky, you can use @groupname 
for valid users as well. I am not sure how you would distinguish unix 
groups from samba groups, but these should be included if your app is 
going to be as functional as possible.
