Hey Jeremy,

this stuff got a lot of love recently. With the endpoint mapper deamon and the 
LSA service daemon we improved the named pipe proxy handling and fixed 
remaining bugs. We also test this stuff in autobuild. spoolssd and lsasd are 
enabled in 'make test' to make sure we don't break anything here.

We still think this is best approch to get smbd as fileserver in S4.
