[Samba] winbind auth, specifying shell

Hey folks,

I'm using winbind authentication against MS Active Directory, and it's
working great.  Because of

template shell = /bin/bash

in smb.conf, new users are getting assigned the bash shell, which is great
in most cases.  Some users, however, prefer a different shell (tcsh).

How can I specify, on a user by user basis, the preferred shell?

I'm guessing this is an attribute in AD somewhere, but what's the best way
to get at that?
