The problem is: I was there, did that. It worked. Then a day later I took the
then-current stuff from Samba 4 and had to do most of the work again, because
stuff had changed. Then I started discussing stuff with Jerry and we came to
the 'moving target' conclusion. Thus my idea to create a separate pidl backend
that might be a bit more stable in the stuff it generates.
