Am I corect in thinking that this is something that would be desireable 
for others and not just me and my rather oddball configuration? For 
people using standalone servers, NSS/LDAP etc and any other places where 
winbind is not used, this would be a rather useful feature, no?

I might actually do some hacking on this myself. Any pointers as to 
where in the code I should dive in?
