i know.

that's just the way i work (commit 4 to 8 times a day) and i rely on you
nice people to give me feedback on things i forgot (thank you! thank you!)

adding this SMB<->MSRPC interface into samba will make it easier to create
snapshots of different daemons,.

i really, really do not want to get into the situation where here we are
one year later and the development branch still hasn't been merged with
the release branch.

on a per-daemon basis, i want to be able to cut that time to a maximum of
three weeks.  ABSOLUTE maximum.

that's simply not going to happen with the current architecture.
