I had considered disabling the --with-nisplus option in the next 2.2.x
release since it only seemed to confuse people and was currently
unmaintained.  Do you thin storing smbpasswd in nis+ is a often
used option?  I had already told Deborah this, but she seems to
continue to want to use it.

btw...It is currently removed from the 2.2

Any thoughts on this?

cheers, jerry
