See, this is the trick I've been talking about.  Technially, Samba can
use kerberos without a windows DC, but there are some silly, (and some
not quite so silly) reasons why that's not an option right now.

However, you can add Kerberos to your existing Samba LDAP server.  That
is, if you run Heimdal 0.6.1 (or better still a snapshot) you can use
your sambaNTpassword as the type 23 encryption key, and have
linux/unix/OSX clients use kerberos.
