yes :)

the ultimate method will be using gentest. I just need to add random
acl get/set to gentest, and then we should be able to run gentest
between a Samba4 box and a w2k3 box. Running it for a while should
quickly find any code paths that don't have authorization checks on

Of course, that will only work once smbd in Samba4 is close enough to
windows that gentest becomes truly useful, so in the meantime we would
need some more targetted tests, but the eventual aim is gentest.
