Do we need a DCE/RPC-IDL-specific-mode? I can see Microsoft adding new
features to their MIDL. Anything they add won't conflict with what they've
already got, though, or they'd mess themselves up massively. Our goals, then
are: 1) to make sure our Samba IDL is a proper superset of MIDL, and 2) that
we're not afraid to fix things if MS introduces a conflicting enhancement.
BTW, how much conflict is there between MIDL and other IDLs? Could sidlc
handle a variety of flavors?
