This is the sort of question which is likely to get me killed or drafted
(or killed by being drafted without any free time to spare), but I'll ask
it anyway. :)

I know for certain that Linux has support in the kernel for IPX
networking, and I suppose there might be other Samba platforms out there
that do as well.  Has consideration ever been given to the idea of giving
Samba the capability to use IPX on those platforms that support it?  Or
is this idea just plain Sick and Wrong? :)
