it _used_ to be just a file server.  when we decided to do NT domains, it
became (becomes) a hell of a lot more than that.

this is one of the reasons why i wish to separate the NT domain (MSRPC)
stuff into separate programs (daemons).  it says, "samba FS stuff has
absolutely so little to do with MSRPC that you can subdivide it into a
separate program".

but you're right.  i should create SURS mappings as a .so shared library.
