[Samba] Google Apps Directory Sync

I was wondering if anyone here had any success connecting Google Apps 
Directory Sync (GADS) and Samba, or if you can confirm non-compatibility.


 From the looks of it, it sounds promising: A Linux server component is 
available, and it can allegedly connect to any LDAP server and it's a 
one-way sync only, from the server to Google. Which in theory should be 
fine for Samba.

It's more a curiosity than a real need for me so I won't research this 
in detail myself at the moment but maybe someone could share his 


P.S. I'm pretty sure to remember that the password sync was discussed at 
some point on this list but I just couldn't find any references to it
