While I understand your concerns very clearly, I have to say that
preloading using a parameter is consistent with the way we do business in
general. Perhaps it is time to revisit the question of smb.conf structure
and utility. We seem to have outgrown smb.conf.
I am also concerned about the number of tools that are springing up to
manage aspects of Samba. If we want a real-time management tool, perhaps
we should be looking at devising a general Samba Admin tool. Something
with varying levels of authority, perhaps, that could also be used as the
back-end for SWAT.
