Novell LDAP had a feature that would allow the content
of a file to be stored in LDAP, and exported when the
A colleague, Dimitre Todorov, wrote a perl program which
read the LDAP comitt log, and whenever it saw an update
of data it was interested in, did a query and wrote out
the data in a specified format. It was to make a non-LDAP-
aware program behave as if it were storing its config in LDAP.
This might make it practical to keep smb.conf data in LDAP.
