Well, the next thing I plan to do with the DCE funnel is provide the option to
fall back to SAMBA implementations for services not registered in the
endpoint mapper. Although there is an initial cost in decoding the IDL for
NT services and debugging the interoperability of the OSF DCE runtime, it's real
nice to be able to have all the marshalling and unmarshalling taken care of
by an IDL compiler, be able to support RPC directly over IP (as required
by Windos 2000) and yet still have SAMBA funnel over named pipe RPCs. :-)
