Yeah.  The Domain Admins hack was a quick fix in an
afternoon of work.  Simo convinced me to spend the time
and effort to implement the privileges feature he
wrote for trunk.

I checked in a backport/rewrite on the privileges code from
trunk into the 3.0 svn code base yesterday.  So at this point
you should be able to assing the SeMachineAccountPrivilege to
any SID you like and use that SID to join the domain.

I've still got some security auditing to do on to make sure I
haven't done anything stupid, but this code will be in
3.0.11pre2 sue out next week.  I'll send a short howto as soon
as I finish the lingering details.

cheers, jerry
