Trouble is, we don't know what branch they're
using (and getting that info out of them is
not easy, believe me :-).

It's almost certainly close to what we'll need,
so we should probably do the work now.

Actually, I was looking at doing the back-port
myself and it's kind of interesting how hard
that is :-). The pidl in the master tree
produces template code now that doesn't 
work with 3-3-test or 3-2-test (it creates
calls to

status = cli->dispatch(...)

instead of :

status = cli_do_rpc_ndr(...)

and also if you try and do a "make idl" on
the idl in samba-3-3-test it fails due to
old "noejs" attributes on various calls,
and if you remove them and make, you end
up with vastly different generated code
than what is stored in the 3-3-test gen_ndr
directories at present.

So how *have* you and gd been maintaining
this stuff ? :-). I need to know in case
both of you get run over by a German bus,
or die of old age waiting for service in
our favourite mexian restaurant over there
:-) :-).
