btw if anyone is concerned about the speed of a multi-processed
arrangement (one daemon per service, where services equals
double-digits as in samba-tng) then of course all you need
to do to fix the fork() issue is to use the same approach as
apache(1&2): have a pool of pre-forked processes on tap.

in fact i am surprised that 1) smbd has not had such code added
to it already 2) that serious consideration has not been given
to using the new apache2 framework: careful analysis of libapr
shows significant code duplication and similarity in key areas.
