Of course (a). We simply don't actively recommend
using a substitute of our own component.

(But never say never... There might in theory be
 conrner cases where this might happen.)

And we certainly DO NOT recommend not to use other
solutions. I'd even say that testing / comparing
other solutions or possible alternatives is highly
welcome, especially if this results in technical
comparison matrices. If we learn what our users
would like in winbindd (or any other component),
we have a chance to react...

Cheers - Michael
