The problem with having a variable for secondary groups
is that there is no single value for it to expand to.
Someone might come up with a clever patch, but its not
on any of our collective todo lists.

What you might look into is to have a perl script
or something that generates the smb.conf.%U files
each of which is something like

	include = smb.conf.group1
	include = smb.conf.group2

I would probably only do this type of thing for share
definitions though.

A second option would be to have a cron job that generates
a directory full of dfs referrals based on the user's secondary
group membership.
