If you want to allocate time, what end users would like are answers to 
simple stuff like this:

1.This is what you can put into smb.conf using the samba binary from 
Samba 4 RC1. (write a list, most common first)

2. This is what you can put into smb.conf using the smbd binary from 
Samba 4 RC1 (ditto)

3. These are the differences when you run smbd from a Samba 3.x release 
as compared to (1) and (2) above. (write another list)

What users are frustrated about right now is the suck it and see trial 
and error methods. We can't/don't read code so we really do need this 
spelling out in plain English terms. smb.conf documentation. Please.
