MD4 and CIFS server

I switched the web client to login via LDAP recently (just an initial authentication).  I noticed that changing authenticationComponentImpl would cause an error of the nature "org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: Failed to initialize authenticator".

Checking this out caused me to realize a lot of md4 hashing takes place, I assume for CIFS etc.

Is it advisable for someone to try adding MD5 or other hashing mechanisms for that?

The goal is to get authentication over the web as-well as CIFS, FTP etc.

Many thanks,

Rollin
