There's a free demo download available on their website.  If this is based on
Samba, it currently bears little resemblance to our code. :)  It looks as
though their config file is intended to look similar to the one used by Samba,
but other than that and the fact that both speak SMB, it looks to be quite a
different creature.

Then again, maybe if I had a set of binutils that understood these files..? :)
