This assumes that people must use samba if they want to use winbind?
There are applications of winbind (for example, I am putting in a
linux/winbind mail server to replace Mercury mail running on the win2k
dc, but have no need for sharing files) where smbd is not needed.

For an alternative implementation, see packaging/Mandrake/winbind.init
(in 2.2.2, 2.2.3a or 2.2.4, seems it's disappeared from cvs).

This starts up and shuts down nmbd with winbindd if smbd is not running.

(Jerry, it seems this file is in the Attic in current samba_2_2 cvs, any
good reason? I haven't gotten around to testing packaging of samba cvs
for Mandrake yet ...):
