Samba Team: would it be reasonable to have SWAT only write non-default
values to smb.conf?  A diff against `testparm -s /dev/null`, if you

This would increase the readability of the resulting smb.conf greatly,
especially for people trying to troubleshoot it who didn't write it.
Primarily, of course, I'm thinking of list requests on samba at ....

Would a patch to this effect be interesting to anyone?  I might have
time to write one, but only if others are interested -- I wouldn't use
the patch myself, as I don't use SWAT.
