That would redirect *all* NDR related stuff though AFAICT, not just
that related to the Exchange DCE/RPC interfaces? It also doesn't
address the issue of the DEBUG() calls from the pidl-generated code.

I'd prefer to just override the debug function
per NDR context and then set that to something OpenChange specific.

That would make the openchange build process even more complicated
than it already is; we'd have to build that openchange debug library,
then build samba against it, then build openchange against samba.
