Hi James,

Well thanks for the forum link. I didn't know about that.

I did ask on that forum about #2 (retrieving the trusted domains for
the "DomainCache") and they answered the next day.

Turns out [MS-DFSC] explains it. It's just a regular
referral with an empty string for a path (2.2.2 RequestFileName).

I guess I'm impressed.

Now I'm just wondering about those patents. Are they ridiculous like
"method for marshaling integers for transmission over networks" or are
they something that we can be worked around if necessary.
