This should be posted samba-jp at samba.gr.jp; equivalent to Samba at samba.org
exactly, not whether samba-technical at samba.org nor sugj-tech at samba.gr.jp.

Japan development member pointed out that running Samba as daemons is
convenience for controlled by swat etc.., but it isn't recommended
because of concerning about performance.
There are some reasons:
- inetd is usually optimized with running operating system.
- inetd is usually enougth small resources requirements for fork().
- master smbd/nmbd (invoked at boot time) always inclease their
resources, and become 'fat process.' It causes fork() cost higher.
