Thanks, Jeremy!  That's great info.

I'm scheduled to talk to IT tomorrow.  I'm sure this will definitely lift some 
of their concerns.

Samba winbindd doesn't need an LDAP binding user account, only a
machine account - the same account they're givng to *every single*
Windows desktop in the domain. If they trust Windows desktops,
then they only need to give the same trust to Samba winbindd.
