[PATCH] Fix defaults in docs, testparm and samba-tool testparm to match

Garming and I continue to work on the technical debt in our loadparm

This patch series is at:

git://git.samba.org/abartlet/samba.git param-default


In that tree, we have the renames we did, and a significant new effort
to fix the lingering issue from Samba 4.0, where the defaults in our two
loadparm systems did not match each other.  

Garming is working on an automated test to validate the three sources
are in sync, and this is the early output.  A large number of errors
were detected, and fixed.  In general, the s3 defaults are the correct
ones, and are used everywhere else, but the rationale for each change is
explained in each commit. 

The test tool itself (improvements to docs.py) will be published soon,
and is now based on parsing the parameters.all.xml using python's
internal XML parser, rather than regular expressions.

We appreciate it is difficult to review and push a 400-patch series, but
we would appreciate exactly that.  Where practical, the patches are
small distinct changes in each commit.  It is currently undergoing a
private autobuild.
