Magic scripts

Hi Chris,
We have customers using CIFS Server (Samba 2.2.8a) that implement and still depend on magic scripts, despite our warnings that they are potentially unreliable and insecure.
So, at least at 2.2.8a, they function, if you do EVERYTHING just right... ;-)

Are magic scripts still supported at all (even experimentally) or have we
removed them? They're still listed in the docs but I've had one report that
they have not worked since 2.0.5.
