No, they really are samba-specific.  NT4 support isn't available, the
only support that exists is for Samba, and you can even find references

The reason is that we worked with them to upgrade the crypto in Samba
beyond NT4 levels, so that Windows wouldn't be burdened with really,
really bad crypto forever (at least in this area).
