FYI samba can do 'ldap passwd sync' when it modifies the LDAP password
directly with a modify_password LDAP operation. No need for scripts,
passwd chat, etc. This works with the samba package in sid, it has to be
patched, though, because the password change operation is no longer
experimental in slapd v2.1 which is also in sid.
