Multiple SWAT admins

I'm wondering if anyone else out there would like users other than root to
be able to configure samba through swat...

I have some boxes with several admins, none of who get the root password
(sudo is configured on the systems). Things like CUPS can take a a group to
be given full access, I'd like to do the same for SWAT.

Are there any reasons against doing this? (I've already patched my own to
take a "swat admin group" or something in the smb.conf file, so I can post
my patch here if requested.)
