hmm, I guess we're coming at this from different perspectives. You're
thinking of making life easier for people who primarily configure via
windows management interfaces. I'm trying to keep it sane for people
who don't :)

ok, if you're not proposing to actually remove these parameters then I
can lower my spines a little :-)

How would you handle the case where an admin edits smb.conf, marks a
share read-only but doesn't update the ACL on the share? I'd want that
to cause a share to become read only.
