I agree that for first stage we probably OK to just link ctdb lib
together with smbd and just fork off the dispatcher daemon as we do with
lockd right now in vl-messaging. The reason we record these notes and
take care of layer separation is to not repeat these errors twice later.

The layer separation isn't actually changing API right now, so it is a
side note for next revision.
