Why should that get in your way? :-)
Most of Samba is basic systems programming, and while of course it deals
with CIFS as a 'core requirement', there are lots of parts of Samba
needing work well away from the protocol details.
Like designing a good web interface on Samba4 (that's not even written
in C!) or designing a transactional database for TDB, or any number of
other interesting tasks. See the ideas we put up for the Google summer
of code for some ideas!
