jeremy, i _do_ want to punish / discourage people from using 2.0.X as a
PDC!  the MSRPC services are old and ugly; the NT to unix mapping system
nails us to some smb.conf parameters i just threw in to loadparm.c so i
could get things working.

i would be very surprised if NT5rc2 can actually talk to 2.0.X MSRPC
services.  NT5rc2 is far more robust and picky about the marshalled data
it will accept (a Good Thing :)

in the end, the patch to fix this damn stuff was modifications to two
lines.  it's therefore pretty simple job to put or not put this in, with
the benefit that if you don't put it in, people won't be able to use NT5
with 2.0.X as a PDC.

i don't care if you like it, people: don't do it!!!  you'll end up with
headaches later, trying to move to 2.1.X!

gerald, the defining answer... i had one ten minutes ago :)
