Architectural umbrella is one thing, a single binary is
another :-). I really think they should be separate cooperating
processes communicating via RPC. Built out of the same tree
using the same codebase, yes, but not in a single binary.
I don't want to worry about destabalizing the AD server when
I'm messing with the SMB2 server (and I'm sure vica verca :-).

My 2 cents.
