	It sounds sane, but I'd make it a series of
	smb.conf options, such as "nmbd publish * 03"
	for "publish all users" (which would cause messages
	to go to the server of course, which may not be what 
	you want!)

	The team is/was in printer hell, but is working toward 
	more functionaility in a 2.x release, and a means of
	generalizing nmbd parametrs might be cool (;-))
