OK, thanks.  I'll make that plan B for now, because I'm currently
building from alioth.debian.org:/git/pkg-samba/samba.git and that
doesn't have 4.1 yet.  (I pulled apart the sernet debs and wasn't
enthusiastic, though I can't remember what specificially I didn't like.)

Thanks, I'll look into ldbmodify.

Thanks, I'll look at that, too.

And that.  I knew about sssd, but started with nslcd because I'd used it
before and had a handle on it.  I'm on Debian 7 which ships sssd 1.8.4.
I can look into backporting 1.10 or 1.11 from jessie/sid - is >1.10
critical, or merely nice-to-have?
