On keeping the docs

Just to follow up on the thread about what to do about the howto

Many of the docs (particularly the Samba HOWTO) are now a little out of
date, and most have not had major revisions in years. 

However, while we tend to focus on how out of date they are, we forget
how little Samba administration changes (or how much we value backwards
comparability).  I did chat with Jelmer on this, who reminded me (but
didn't get a chance to write to the list) that it is still much easier
to fix up old docs than to start from scratch. 

Therefore, while we won't ship them built in rc1, I think we should at
least try and go over and correct the docs, rather than wholesale remove
