	It's the common case, not the general case.
	Serving 80% of the general case is A Good Thing. Serving
	80% of the common case is a slow decline to irrelevancy (:-))

	Samba exists to support MS clients, which is the general case.
	Supporting MS servers is a good idea, but is not the only idea.
	Assuming it is eliminates consideration of most of my customers'
	sites. Which Would Be Bad.
