	I don't think it is possible in Samba3 (but I think it is
possible in Samba4). The main point is that usually you are just a
member server in AD, which means read-only (and access to change
pre-defined options).

	AD is a LDAP Server, so, you could use some binding and
commands to change it directly, but I don't think you could use
regular samba commands to change group membership.
