With Samba 2.2, just do everything just as you did before, but *do not* use
winbind in nsswitch.  You will need to join winbind to itself.  (ie, smbpasswd
-j -Uroot%foo)

With Samba 3.0, this is now a properly supported solution, as of beta2/3 in
particular.  Use 'net rpc join' on the server to join itself to itself.
