Whilst that is true of the 2.0.x release code, the 2.2.x
DCE/RPC code structure is definately suitable for production
environments. The remaining work to be done is to move the
each specific DCE/RPC call implementation  back from TNG to
HEAD and then ship it. The underlying DCE/RPC implementation
in HEAD is extremely robust.

I'm just clarifying the split between underlying DCE/RPC
transport and PDU code and the specific calls on top here
as I didn't want people to think we'd not fixed the known
issues with the 2.0.x code in this area.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
