This is the problem. The current code (hack the password of a dozen
accounts until we get in) in Samba3 is so long removed from 'trivial to
support' it's not funny. A fixed password per share may be 'trivial',
but even that requires somewhere to store it, change it etc.
It's more like 'present, but unsupportable', as while it seems to work
most of the time, few can explain why or how.
As each person has looked to clean up this area, fear of breaking it has
left the code largely like it was found back in the 2.2 days or
