Use libnetapi to join Active Directory

Feature state

Starting with 3.2.0 Samba will contain libnetapi, which is a C API providing features required to join an Active Directory Domain. The "Windows Domain Membership" YaST Module should switch to use this API instead of calling the "net" command. This should make the Module much easier to maintain

Stano, please, postpone. Minimal gain, it would requre to write a new C++ agent, and use code which has not been used before for this purpose.

Let's stay with proven method and experiment with a new one for 11.2.

Ralf and Samba-Team: is this reject acceptable for you - or will this have negative impact on AD integration?

Jim, could you please answer Matthias' question I am not sure if libnetapi does provide anything that we need in SLED10, which is not provided by the "net" command.

It is not advisable, but it is acceptable for now. Initially, it will simply mean that we are more exposed to the net command format changes, or any of the possible problems caused by running and interpreting output from external commands.

Longer term, it should be done, as any new function will be implemented first through libnetapi, and not necessarily exposed through the net command.
