ok.  I'm glad to see I'm thinking the same way as you
are in rpc_client/ndr.c.  That makes me feel better
about my own understanding.  The use of DATA_BLOB
was a nice touch.

I have a couple of questions.  The unixinfo.h in
your 3.0-libndr/ bzr branch is different that one
I get from running "pidl --header librpc/idl/unixinfo.idl"
in the current SAMBA_4_0 branch.  Mostly just in relation
to the [ref] pointers.  Do you have a newer version of
pidl somewhere ?

Secondly, I don't see any hooks into rpc_server yet.
I'm guessing you are just starting on the client code
and using the existing rpc_parse/ code to test the
client autogenerated code.  If you haven't started on
a server hook, I will start working on a patch.  That
would help me make sure I'm following your design.

Finally, I'm assuming that the --samba3-XXX options to
pidl are not obselete, correct ?

There also seems to be some GetOptions() issues....

$ perl pidl/pidl --header librpc/idl/spoolss.idl
pidl: no input files

Do you want a patch for this ?  or have you already
fixed in locally.

cheers, jerry
