Oh! That's the desired access parameter.  It's a bitfield of what
access you're requesting be granted to the handle you're opening.
I don't know what any of the bits mean in samr, but there's a generic
access, MAXIMUM_ALLOWED (0x02000000), which means just give me
everything I'm permitted.  It's nice for this because we don't know
what we really want and might be running as different users who don't
have the same permissions.  Ideally, you just ask for the access
necessary for the whatever calls you're going to follow with, but I
don't know what they are.


p.s. I should have defined it in a header somewhere, but I was trying
to change as few files as possible.
