[Samba] Password Filtering

Morning all,

So doing the google-foo this morning, I'm coming up empty on a decent
way to handle custom password filtering with Samba, so I figured I'd
ask here how to approach this.

What we wish to do is implement some way to prevent users from using
certain passwords via the Windows Security Change Password screen. On
a windows environment, from what I'm reading, this is achieved via
Password Filters DLLs that you can install and register on the domain
controller. So my question is how to go about implementing something
like that on our Samba AD DC setup? Or is there another way to
approach this problem entirely that I'm not aware of?

Any advice is appreciated!
