That didn't stop Samba-TNG from using the same file for both.  It makes
rather an interesting approach - one that you need if you want one
deamon per-pipe...

They have a single server.c, which makes a single server.o - and it's
all the other files that are linked in that determines the behaviour of
the final product.  It's interesting, but for samba's 4 or so, almost
all compleatly different servers, it doesn't make nearly as much sense.

What would make more sense is cleaning up our client code to use more
common functions, arguments etc :-)
