Change password in Samba and ldap

Hi list,

I do wonder how to change the password in samba as well as ldap at the same 
time - best as a normal user.

The ldap part is clear - kdepasswd comes to my mind which is even user 
friendly. However, this doesn't change the samba password. For that I could 
use sambapasswd, as long as the smb.conf has the option:
unix password sync = no

However, that still requires the user to do two steps to keep the passwords 
synced, which is indeed kind of embarrassing. Also, I'm not sure if it is ok 
for the daily work to keep the above mentioned option set to 'no' instead of 
the default 'yes'.

Any experiences or ideas on that?
