There is code going into Samba 3.0.20 thata will allow
smbd to support kerberos tickets when using a keytab
and security = user.  There's no docs on it yet I'm afraid.
But it has already been checked into the SAMBA_3_0 tree and
will be in the 3.0.20pre1 release sometime next week.
It was work done by Andrew Bartlett.
