What I don't understand is why Samba doesn't implement that feature ? It's not
new, TSE is quite old. Nobody needs that or what ?
I don't know the complete history of Samba, but there is some messages (not a
lot) on newsgroups of persons who need terminalprofilepath and trying to play
with %m variable in profile path to simulate that feature without success.

To the question "Why can't we just implement what microsoft uses?", I would like
! But me, I can't do that (You've seen how I code). 

So what is the position of the Samba team for that kind of questions. Can I hope
 one day to have that feature in Samba ? Citrix is on the trend in France, I'm
consultant and I can't propose Samba as an alternative to a windows PDC to my
customers without such a feature.
