One feature I do want to add is the ability of specifying a particular
smbd by other parameters, such as:

     smbcontrol user/tridge debug 9

which would set the debug level to 9 for the smbd that is logged in as
user "tridge". To support this I plan on adding a:
     message_add_alias(char *name);
function which would allow any part of the code to give itself an
"alias" which can be used to refer to the process. So nmbd would call
and winbindd would call:
