I've been thinking about this, and changing the convention on the return
value (so that a value other than 'OK' is also good) is just asking for
trouble. I think we should just add a 'BOOL rejoined' flag to the
r->out structure. We also need a flag for the input of 'force' so an
admin can rejoin as a different type of account (overwriting a BDC or
member, by deleting it first), with 'net join --force'.
What do you think?
