While there is some ongoing work to properly implement AFS support, this
isn't it.  This is 'AFS cleartext authentication support'.   That means
that you *must* give samba the password, at login time, in plain text. 
This means that the windows client must have it's registry hacked to
support this.  This is no longer supported by microsoft, and has nasty,
nasty bugs.

The best bet is to wait until this can be done properly with the krb5
login ticket.  Then we can use that, with 'proxy' permissions (or
whatever they are called) to authenticated to the AFS server.

There is ongoing work to make Samba a proper AFS gateway, using this.
