The standard way to disable LM hashes in a Microsoft shop is to
configure the clients to not save them (Local Security Policy ->
Security Options -> "Network security: Do not store LAN Manager hash
value on next password change").  I don't think they even offer a
server-side option to do so.

It does seem like a useful feature for Samba.
