At the moment, it has to be decided if a user has an samba account can only be
decided when the account is created.

If an samba account shall be added later for a user, this is not possible with
the Yast UsersPluginSamba, as this requires changing the password (or setting
the same password again).

IMHO, this restriction is to strict. The following should be possible:
- Activate the samba account for the user
: this should add the sambaSamAccount objectClass to the user,
: at least set the user sid, optionally the group sid
: leave the password empty
- The user can then later on change/reset his password with "passwd"
: The user has a valid posixAccount, which allows him to authenticate
: himself against LDAP.
: if there is an LDAP ACL "access to attrs=sambaNTPassword by self write",
: the user is able to set his samba password even without an preexisting
: samba password
