We don't use winbind either and we also use nslcd (what a superb piece 
of kit). We simply store the rfc2307 attributes in the dn of the user or 
group and have setup scripts to manipulate uses and groups in this way. 
All I'm looking for is an altrernative to the file sever that ships with 
S4 at the moment. I think the new fileserver will become stable soon. 
Just looking at the possibilites for having something now rather than 
wait. Franky on the same box is attractive.
