It opens up the whole question of modifying the structure of smb.conf
(which is a topic I've been flamed for raising before -- here I go
I'd love to see something more hierarchical and, particularly, something
that enforces the relationships between parameters. Perhaps the way to go
(with Samba4?) is to build a back-end as has been done for so many other
systems. The back-end would need to be able to read and write
configuration files. (...and the old smb.conf format would have to be
supported for backward compatibility.)
As usual, this is really a 'money-where-my-mouth-is' sort of thing. If'n
it's gonna happen, someone has to write it.
