Would it be possible to implement api that allow
1.  Service enumeration
2.  parameter enumeration for a given service
3.  service existence look up
4.  Transparent caching for lookups  [ This one not extremely necessary ]

Also, Ming,  is this work available in some branch ?

My requests would make more sense if I said that I am trying to
connect to your api via the registry rpc calls.  I already have a
proof-of-concept implementation that allows listing the services via
registry rpc, internally using the existing loadparm calls.

The registry rpc infrastructure by Jerry seems ready for this missing
link for smb.conf access.
