Jeremy and I were talking yesterday and he brought u9p a really good
point.  Not only must there be a migration path from 2.2. to 3.0, but
there also must be a means of downgrading to 2.2 **from** 3.0.

If 2.2.0 showed uus anything is was that people try xx.0 release and back
down if things don't work correctly.  This downgrade path may be just to
save a copy of the pre-converted smb.conf.  Just pointing it out that the
path must be bi-directional.

cheers, jerry
