I think the most positive thing that users of TNG with reasonable
programming ability (unfortunately that excludes me) is to try and use
TNG as a reference implementation and merge these into HEAD. The first
prize is a HEAD with all the current TNG functionality.

If I had the ability, and more than 1 hour free time per week (which I'm
currently using to learn C), I would help. I am sure there are enough o
capable people out there to help with this.

I am currently only using samba 2.0.7 as a PDC, but am jealous of all
the features I am missing, however, I cannot introduce samba into an NT
environment with TNG.
