Well it's my first C-patch so I didn't want to do anything advanced. :-)

I think a good principle for getting this to work is that all
configuration options should have sensible defaults.

Q.2: Are there any good reasons for having to add a sambauser via the
KDC-code? Isn't this done easier and better via other channels?

> structural object name
IMHO, this should be like today: use account as base and do not bother
much with modifying it. Let the sambacode search for sambaSAMAccount
instead of the account objectclass.

If someone can point me to some sample code for schemadetection I'll try
to hack together something that may check if it is the old Samba2.x
ldapschema or the new one (and also to check if the krb schema exist).

Yes this should be the most important configuration attribute IMHO.

I'm not sure what you're going after here, but I'm thinking that the
databasedefinition could be something like this:

database {
	dbname  = ldap:<searchbase>
	ldap-kerberos-add-base = ou=Kerberos,<searchbase>
	# this defines the searchfilter, 
	# 0 : searchfilter
	# 1: searchfilter also searches for uid and sambasamaccount
	ldap-use-samba = 0|1 
	# optional, if you want to exclude some objects from your
	# domain
        ldap-samba-userbase = ou=People,<searchbase>
	# optional sambadomain, if you have multiple domains you want to 	#map
differently. Also adds to the searchstring.
	ldap-samba-domain = MYDOMAIN 


This makes it possible to set up a kerberos domain with only
database {
	dbname = ldap:<searchbase>
 	ldap-use-samba = 1
And be done if you got a fairly standard setup. 

Anyhow, just my 0.02c :-)
