Err. Why. We have working security descriptors now. Do the
unix extensions add anything ? Are there any clients that
use them ? Are we convinced that we want to legitimize
CIFS as a UNIX to UNIX protocol in some way (I'm not, I
think it's a horrid protocol :-) ?


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
