Ummm, hmm. Winbind can be a pam auth mechanism. Cups does support groups
quite well through pam as well. You just have to specify the groups
allowed for what where in the cupsd.conf

I have SAMBA setup as an LDAP PDC,  CUPS does just fine doing auth
against it that way, using pam. Which leads to cups also can query LDAP
through PAM or even could/should use (somehow, but I am not sure)
kerberos v5 tickets, too.
