[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#437534: winbind: please add wins to nsswitch.conf by default

Package: winbind
Version: 3.0.25b-1+b1
Severity: wishlist

I'd like winbind to automatically add the wins hostname resolving method
to /etc/nsswitch.conf, so I can resolve windows machine names with
resolveip by default. There is code in the libnss-mdns postinst that
could be adapted to winbind.
