I don't think we need to let it come to this.  

Kai: I'll write any required tests, run a wintest, propose/make any of
the required ACL changes to the dns server you don't manage find time
for, and as I'm certain Matthieu's concerns about maintainer-ship can be
addressed, change the default before RC1.  

I'm terribly sorry for the way I've treated you in this.  This is an
impressive feature, an incredibly useful addition and a worthy default.
I'm certain with our combined efforts we can solve any remaining issues
that come up.  The plugfest and IO lab will be a good place to do
exactly that, which is handy given they are next week :-)

In hammering my unchanging tune I haven't given you the respect you
deserve as a valued and respected member of the Samba team, and for that
I'm truly sorry.
