I agree, I think I've grown a few gray hairs from DCE. I guess
the argument in favour of it depends on how similar the kinds 
of lookups WINE needs to make are to existing, implemented,
RPCs. If there isn't much overlap then yes, choosing DCE RPC
doesn't buy you much in terms of reduced amounts of code on
the server.
