After ending my investigation, it looks like it indeed is possible. It 
seems samba-tng has remote repository access, though I didn't try it.
Check out e.g.
"REGEDIT Commands" under

Seems to do what I wanted, right?

I decided I really needed WMI access for it to be really useful. And WMI 
access isn't possible from Linux. At least nobody seems to know how to 
do it.

Just wanted to make my investigation results available for anybody else 
on the same quest.

Also, it seems repository access was once possible with samba itself! 
Look in:
and see the commented-out code...
I posted a thread (also) about this called "Windows WMI (over DCE/RPC) 
with Samba?" on the samba-technical mailing list.
