On a related note: is it possible to put the whole auth conversation
between the Windows client and the Samba PDC in SSL, i.e. is something
like stunnel available for Windows?  That way, the password would
travel securely, but still the PDC would be able to get it in
cleartext, and it could in turn hand it to a OpenLDAP that would check
it for authentication.  That would finally allow us to get rid of NT
and LM hashes and say goodbye to password syncing problems.
