Another week, another version ;)

I have made a web tool using an existing web server to
edit smb.conf and any include files. It's made up of one
executable C++ program, and some cgi scripts.

This tool will preserve file layout, comments, and include

By adding lines (to smb.conf) like this one below you can
edit wildcard include files, used to give each user/each
machine its own setup:

#include /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.mypc
#include /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.anders
#include /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.smurfan

If the cgi script for process control are given superuser
privs it can kill -SIGxxx each smbd process via one of the
html forms.
