Yes, I really expected this to be applied to HEAD.

I don't think this should go into a 2.2 release - becouse if we do such
a release then we will *really* want to keep changes down.  This is
HEAD/Samba 3.0 stuff.

Thanks to all involved on this - now I just hope we can get the perl
interface updated to the new version ;-)

(I want to use a web/smb interface based on the new smb2www code - but
it really needs the context stuff for security under mod_perl).
