I do agree that Samba belongs, for many use cases, in the OpenStack
service layer.  I'm very interested to understand how you see it
overlapping with Keystone - both for my understanding and for possible
integration or assistance.  

Samba's user database I think mostly pertains to the users in a tenant
(even if not managed by that tenant), wheras I understand Keystone is
typically the VMs and their administrators.  For those there is some
overlap, but not one I think should cause us a major issue, but I'm very
interested to learn more.
