[Samba] auth. username rewriting?

Now, I'm faced with a problem: I need to be able to login using the same
username that I bind against using ldapsearch, and not the
sAMAccountName given to me via winbind.
ie. to login using one of my AD usernames right now, I issue:
su - ADSDOMAIN+username1
but the binddn I use to search the ldap directory is, say, username2:
ldapsearch -x -W -D"username2" samaccountname=bla
I'd like to be able to do:
su - ADSDOMAIN+username2
and for winbind to recognize username1 and username2 as the same user
account, and authenticate over the Active Directory server using
username1. Then, I can have a list of the username mappings in a file,
or obtain them via LDAP.
I've searched around and couldn't find anything (the username map field
in smb.conf seems to be for something else).. and what comes to mind is
Apache's URL rewriting: I need something similar to this but for usernames.
Is this possible via Samba/Winbind? If not, is there a way I can do it
Any help is appreicated, thanks.
