Adding ejs to Samba3 is pointless (IMHO). We need good
management interfaces with scripting language bindings.

Once we have these then people can add different front
end implementations to manage many different kinds of
servers, not just Samba (SCRAP anyone.... ?:-).

The ejs code is a large lump of not-well-maintained
code as far as I can see, and we already have enough
of that in Samba3 :-) :-).
