Don't get me wrong -- I don't want OpenChange inside Samba.
I'm just asking whether there's a reasonable way to carve
out the essential RPC pieces that *have* to link to Samba,
leaving the rest to OpenChange via some proper IPC
mechanism, such as a unix domain socket. I could imagine
that such a RPC layer inside Samba could be pretty static,
the development I would imagine would happen somewhere else.

Am I completely off? Julien?
