The two processes I am looking at right now is smbd and
winbind. I am thinking about adding two routines,
smbd_event_context() and winbind_event_context() with their
own function-static variables. In Samba3 we still have too
many talloc_new(NULL) places or just do not pass a talloc
context down to really use event_context_find().
