You could well be right there, not that the syntax of it means much to
me. I am more interested in winbind using these extra features. It may
well save having to do a separate LDAP server. Andrew Bartlett seems to
think winbind 3.0 can do this already and it did occur to me it could be
made to. I can't see it from the doco or examples so I might have to
look at the code.
