yeah, i keep asking myself about this, too.  i'm really not sure what to
do about this, yet.

i don't think so, either.

yes.   that _is_ the implementation of microsoft's LSA!!!

the LSA _is_ a redirector.

in other words, you plug in a new lsarpcd and you have an NT5-based LSA.

or, you plug in a netware-based lsarpcd.

in each case, you don't _need_ samrd any more because you're not running a
SAM-based system.

lsarpcd, strictly speaking, should be implemented in terms of samr_xx()
client-side calls.
