Many thanks for this great, helpfull list. May I ask, where you find it?

I already use --with-logfilebase, but this doesn't allow me to have one log 
per machine. In samba 3x I could configure
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
to have one *.log file per machine, what makes it easy to find errors/problems 
produced by this one machine. s4 doesn't know the %-variables any more, it seems.
