[Samba] Mapping Attributes While Using Winbind?

I'm working on testing out using winbind in our environment for user info and authentication.  Our 2K8 R2 AD DS set up has all of the rfc2307 attributes populated for objects that need to appear on the Unix machines and everything is working splendidly.  One thing I'd like to know is, we have some instances where users' AD accounts are not the same as their unix id's (matching them up at this point is not an option).  Is there a way to tell winbind to look at the uid attribute in AD rather than the sAMAccountName for a Unix user name?  For example, if my AD login is JUser but my uid in AD is defined as juser1, is it possible to tell the unix systems running winbind to log me in with juser1 instead of juser?

If not, I can simply use the LDAP interface into AD for those systems, but I'd like to try and keep everything consistent, if possible.
