I looked at it once, but I won't have the time for that at the moment. I
do, however, think that it should have some massive changes made. It's
all well and good to have a GUI, but when it's just as easy (more so,
given the documentation in the example file) to edit smb.conf by hand, I
think there are problems. I think a number of "Sane Defaults" should be
assumed. Anyone who wants to get into the more technical stuff
*obviously* knows (or thinks they knows ;-)) what they are doing. If
done correctly, it could take some pressure off getting the User Damager

My 2 cents worth,
