	It's cost is
	1 smbd and one nmbd per physical interface
	1 nmbd if you're doing DNS, and
	1 smbd per user, independant of interfaces.

	So think of it as 2-3 extra processes per interface,
	both of which are low-load.

	Which might make a good reason for us to support it (;-))

	How about it (oh overworked Samba Team), does having
	virtual workgroups sound like a worthwhile and easy
