Yeah, I could restrict access to the appropriate Samba and Kerberos
attributes. But if I "hide" loginShell, users will just get a default
shell and therefore still be able to login via ssh public key. So I
either set an invalid shell or change permissions for the keyfiles in
their home directory. Both require custom code and by changing the
shell, I keep everything inside LDAP.

And as I said, I have a custom schema in my DIT that needs some
attributes set for locked accounts, so I need custom code anyway. And
since everything that doesn't use simple bind in my environment honors
the 'D' flag in sambaAcctFlags, it is imho just as clean as using ACLs,
for those applications.
