Don't forget the 120 lines of documentation.  ;-)  But the whole thing 
only took 25-30 hours so it's not like I'm sleep deprived.  Or rather, not 
because of this project.  :-)

BTW, if there's anybody on the list with some free time that feels like 
helping get IPv6 into Samba, I encourage them to pick up the patch and 
test it with both --with-ipv6 and without.  It would be good to get a bit 
of testing with this patch to see if there's any major problems I missed.
