[Samba] Retrieve netgroup information from other sources than NIS?

Dear all,

We're using LDAP for user, group and netgroup information. Obviously,
samba does not care about /etc/nsswitch.conf when it comes to netgroups
and heads for NIS directly, which is what the manpage of smb.conf
correctly states.

Is there a way to make samba retrieve the netgroup information from LDAP
instead of NIS? In case that way is to implement it, may I post this as
a feature request? ;)
