I tried it (and I'm still experimenting), but I have 2 problems:
- I have multiple zones relaying on WINS lookup (I "solved" it by
updating every zone on WINS update)
- When I receive an update like this:

refresh NAME~OTHERNAME 1c 1158576495 x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t
x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t x.y.z.t
x.y.z.t x.y.z.t
(with many IPs)
samba4wins stops updating my DNS zone.

I made a workaround: at every update containing a '~' I do
an /etc/init.d/smbd4wins restart, but it's not so nice.
