Are you asking about local login via pam_winbind?  or just via smbd?
If the latter, then the username map should solve it.  If the former,
then I could probably do this in in likewise-open using the name
alias support and some NSS ordering tricks.

PS: The same patches are pending for upstream Samba.  I just keep
getting distracted everytime I try to prepare then to push.
