	A NON-critical documentation-and-policy question
	for 2.2.4:

	Currently, we sem to default
		mangled names = Yes
	(unless it just changed).  This startled
	me, as I thought we were being NT-like.
	However, when i brought up smbfs on a linux
	test machine, all the names were in 8.3 format.

	I checked the 2.0.8 I was running and the 2.3-pre?
	I had been testing, and testparm claimed in both
	cases that the dedault was mangled names = Yes
	I changed it, of course, in my smb.conf, but
	it wasn't what I'd expected!

	Did I miss something?
