Assunto: [Samba] Samba and Kerberos

Is there anyway to have Samba auth against Kerberos?

I'm not looking for DC capability, or integration with AD, or 
anything fancy.  I don't want/need Samba to obtain K5 tickets on 
behalf of the client. All I want is to have Samba auth the username and 
password against an existing kerberos environment much like I have 
IMAP doing now.

Is it possible to have Samba auth against PAM, which could be 
configured to use  If so, can someone point me to docs 
on doing this?  I found
which seems to indicate it's possible, however, I'm also assuming 
that to use this, I'd need to have the Windows clients transmitting 
their passwords in cleartext, which I'm not so keen on (unless 
there's some way to run Samba over SSL or the like?)

Thanks for any pointers anyone can throw my way.
