We don't yet have an Active Directory PDC (it is much more than
samba+openLDAP+kerberos - we need them all working with each other :-).
That said, we are often confused for an active directory PDC by the
clients - they often 'fall back' in parts of the protocol. It may well
be possible to create such policies - In the end, they are just a file
in a particular file share.
It would be an interesting challenge for somebody to work on. :-)
