This is the most efficient way of doing it, as it uses the pre-
calculated group list provided by the SamLogon reply.

However it is also quite blunt, because there is no/little
distinguishing between logon failures and group membership failures. 

Perhaps there is a way to do that with the winbind module?  That is
more efficient in very high-load situations (no fork/exec overhead, re-
uses the same socket).  If not, someone should add it.
