I'm just wanting to double-check, as this thread has too much potential
for miscommunication and misunderstanding:  I think you saying that the
experience of building the forked endpoint mapper, lsa and spoolss
deamon in Samba 3.x gives you much more confidence in the named pipe
handling.  If I understand you correctly, your view is therefore that
you feel that this particular, critical component of any smbd/AD
integration is mature?

Or, are you proposing a wider change to the AD architecture that is
currently in place, such as using your s3 epmd and the s3 lsa server in
the DC?
