NamedPipe DCE/RPC struct split

Hi Simo,

I'm going to ask a simple technical question.

I want access to all the named pipes Samba doesn't need.
I'm not interested in "embrace and extend"ing Samba.
I'm not interesting trying to change Wine's license.
I want to provide Named Pipe endpoints though port 139 somehow.

Simple Technical Question: 

Will the Samba Team consider accepting a patch that gives access 
(via Samba) to NBT Named Pipes though a unix domain socket as a 
standard feature of Samba?

btw. That's your opinion, i consider it incorrect, and like you said,
this is 
a technical list.
