Aside from the dump format route, you could also use the Samba migration
route (net rpc vampire) and the fact that Heimdal will read the Samba
passwords, when in LDAP.  Again, this is only the arcfour-hmac-md5
encryption type for now, but it is a 128 bit hash.


(The issue with this encryption type is lack of support in older
kerberos libs, more than anything else).

I have code that extracts more than just these keys from AD, but I've
not yet fully parsed the structure I'm given.
