One site we run has 600 users all with rfc2307. The only way we can
getent the whole list is with sssd. I know it's a false test as I don't
suppose you'd ever need to do it, but with enumeration, winbind grinds
to around one user per minute after it's done around 200. Of course,
those blessed with modern hardware need only toss a 3 way coin.
