nope. connection_struct are useless in the rpc code. well in the global
case, maybe in 1 or 2 cases ??? But not required for the spoolss.

the spoolss code needs to get a list of 'lp_printable()==ok' shares
including the [printers] one. that's all.

Hum well, just something. I've got your idea of splitting the rpc code
into seperate daemons from smbd, it has a lot of pros, it's an old project
you had (we talked of that almost 2 years ago at CB1).

But I really don't get your last 2 weeks work ! Is anybody on this
list able to explain why splitting the rpc server code is cool ? something
*really* necessary ? a must have for samba ?
