Quick addition to this--

Ever wanted to give users the ability to configure their own shares, but
were afraid they'd do something that broke company policy(like *cough*
enable PDC support :-) ?

Root owns, which parses the user-offered samba config and only
outputs lines that don't violate the established security policies.  Samba
exec's via an include exec.

Seems pretty slick to me...
