There is a wicked little trick to this.  Grab Samba 3.0 from CVS and
build it.  From the build steal the smbgroupedit utility.  Then throw
away the rest of the 3.0 build.  smbgroupedit works with every Samba
I've tried since (and including) 2.2.1a to establish NT groups and
relations between NT and Posix groups.  Does something inside one of the
TDB files.  It is ***obviously*** NOT "supported",  but it works for me.
