For automation in perl scripts that add users, trying to add in smbpasswd,
I'm sure, years ago, there was a way of issueing this without drama, now 
it seems it wont just take the password, is there a hidden option? or can we 
get "-w" changed so that it inserts the paswsword into the pass file?

`smbpasswd -a foo -w bar`;  would be nice and painless for automation 
without writting yet another messy expect script :)
