weelll... chris hertel discussed over a year ago about doing a
hierarchical smb.conf parser.
you could then do something like this:
param 1 = x
client ntlmv2 = yes
database type = SAM (or LDAP or NDS etc)

argh. no. horrible. :) threads are non-ansi-c-portable. you want us
to exclude loads of people? *sigh*
