About that, I don't think that posting the following on ntdom
"Samba is just a file/print server and nothing else, nor will
 it ever be" 
will cause quite an uproar. I don't need to remind anyone of
the fact that people are using TNG in _production_ environments,
just because there is nothing else. It has its problems in
some areas, but it seems stable enough to hold.

I see the point, Andrew is technical lead and chief architect of
Sambe (the file and print server).

I would like to know if the intention is to:
 - drop all ntdom code,
 - only implement the portion that allows file/printer sharing,
 - implement all ntdom code in place in TNG.

If the latter is the case, then samba will be more than a file/
print server (which I think is inevitable).
