Would that still allow for the combination of Samba and non-Samba
information in the same LDAP directory? I think being able to do that is
a great feature. That way, you can have Samba, mail routing and all
other sort of information in one place. I'm sorry if I got you wrong,
that didn't seem clear to me in your proposal.
