Hm, I actually liked the idea of being able to build from the top dir, instead 
of having to cd into the source/ dir. We could get started on moving the 
tests from the various test dirs closer to the code they test and clean up 
there as well if clutter in the root dir is an issue.

My proposal is to have a Makefile in the root dir and have that build s3 
on "make samba3", s4 on "make samba4" and franky on "make franky". I'm open 
for suggestions on what should fall out of the tree on a plain "make". :)
