What's wrong with an IP alias? If NetBIOS multiplexing requires hacking
Samba, getting there will require substantial support from the Samba
community at take an indeterminate amount of time. Setting up IP
aliasing, on the other hand, is a simple administration task that
requires no support by third parties. Thus server functionality
will be much easier to achieve this way then the other (even if the
Samba guys cooperate, it will take years until a majority of the
Samba/wine installations has the modified Samba).

I just played around with winbind a bit, and I'd say it's exactly what
we're looking for. Change a few lines in nsswitch.conf, add
pam_winbind.so to your PAM configuration, and you're all set.
