Quoting Osamu Aoki (osamu at debian.org):
> Package: winbind

> Severity: wishlist

Thanks for you suggestion and bug report, Aoki-san.
However, I think it really should be up to the local admin to decide what
to do, here.
I never added wins to nsswitch.conf on any of my samba servers and
they're still working fairly well.
At the very minimum, this should be done through a (low priority)
debconf question (defaulting to not do anything). Given that, I'm far
from being convinced of this being really useful, I will eventually
consider this.....if we get a working patch implementing this,
including debconf question..:)
