I think so. Had no time for a proof-of-concept implementation yet.
But if windbindd is configured, you can use standard Unix commands
to get group/user info, like this:

$ id 'synergy.dom\wilck'
uid=10050(SYNERGY.DOM\wilck) gid=10005(SYNERGY.DOM\cc_user)

Note: this info comes from our PDC. If you do an 'ltrace' on the id(1)
command, you see that it calls getpwnam(), getpwuid(), getgrent() and
friends only.
