Would it make sense to try and get winbind to do that for us, if possible? Or 
would we be unable to use the results of that in a sensible way?

Jerry Carter is currently working on an LGPL winbind client library, we could 
use that. In the long run, winbind will convert to an idl-based protocol and 
we could just talk to winbindd directly, thus dropping a dependency.
