[Samba] Folding Samba into existing PAM_LDAP?

I've just migrated from NIS to LDAP for our UNIX users, and I'm looking
at continuing a move to LDAP for Samba. Our existing setup has
everything running as a workgroup, authenticating via flat files instead
of PAM. As it stands, all the usernames and passwords are the same
across the NIS and Samba domains, but this is done more or less manually.
How can I go about importing an existing smbpasswd file to populate an
already-running LDAP directory? It seems that all that I need to do is
add the proper objectClass, lmpassword, and ntpassword entries, but I'd
like to use the existing data. From the looks of it (please correct me
if I'm wrong,) the idealx smbldap-tools may not be the right way to go
in this case.
Thanks in advance,
