nslcd is simplicity itself but we couldn't get it going for nested
groups. Also it doesn't do dynamic dns updates, which sssd throws in for
free and unless you use nscd, it's slow.

Maybe your wiki could include the config for kerberised binds to the S4
ldap? This is all you need:
uid nslcd
gid nslcd
uri ldap://your.f.q.d.n
base dc=foo,dc=bar
map passwd uid samAccountName
map    passwd homeDirectory unixHomeDirectory
sasl_mech GSSAPI
sasl_realm YOUR.REALM
krb5_ccname /tmp/nslcd.tkt

Hope you get a chance to have a play with sssd. It would be good to hear
other views on how it compares with winbind and nslcd.
