I have to disagree!  This is highly *on topic* because its one of the
most useful tools for Samba development (the stated topic of this list)

I can highly recommend the new ethereal, having used the cvs version -
it has made my life much easier doing this kind of work.

Many thanks to tpot for his RPC decoding work and to the Ethereal team
for this most valuable tool!
