Hi all,

Back about 2 years ago, there was some discussion on this list about Samba
support for creating and deleting services on Windows machines (in addition
to starting and stopping them).  Danny Tylman provided a patch implementing
and there seemed to be some interest about it in subsequent messages.

However, it looks like the createservice / deleteservice support was never
integrated -- at least, as far as I could tell from 3.3.3 and 4.0.0a7

I'm just curious what happened to this feature...
