Ok, clarification:

I am just using unix tools to administer daemons. But i *know* people
that want to start & stop all kind of services (yes, SENDMAIL(!) among
others like NAT or ftp or smbd) on a linux or bsd box with their
This feature *was* requested when i installed a linux box long time ago.
(A working usrmgr is more important btw). they *can* use a web
but they prefer NT-tool. please just dont ask me why. they *cannot* use
a shell.

What i want is that you can do anything you want to do with rpcs. I dont
care about the implementation (although a sambarpc-perl module sure
would be fun ;)

And not that i know any, but why wouldn´t some unix-admin want to use
when he has to use NT anyway? times are changing, not only geeks have
rights on unix-boxen nowadays.
