I think it would be neat to rewrite the debugging system to
support a bit more granularity.  I.e be able to turn on rpc
debugging at level 10, but not have to wade through all the smb
packet stuff.  Perhaps something like using the top level bits in
the DEBUGLEVEL variable to denote a subsystem (rpc, smb, print,
whatever).  We can even use tridge's tricky message passing code
to change subsystems on the fly!

As a programming job, this shouldn't be too hard but it could be
tricky categorising the existing debugs.

Most of the docs/textdocs are out of date and could do with some
