  | 2.  DOMAIN\User1 logs into Samba
  | 3.  Winbind creates UID for User1

For my usage model, the conflicting UIDs are acceptable,
and this possibility is/will be documented as such.

If your UNIX & ADS admins are communicating, it is be a simple
matter of creating the NIS account and using find && chown to
change the perms from the original Winbind-allocated-UID to the
new UID.

If your UNIX & ADS admins aren't communicating in that scenario,
you're in more trouble than I care to think about.  Seriously.
