Disabling SMB1 by default

we recently had a bug filed against Ubuntu [1] requesting that we disable
the SMB1 protocol by default. That is part of a larger campaign [2] to get
rid of SMB1 entirely.

Has there been any discussion among Samba developers to change the default
client and server min protocol level to SMB2? Would you consider making
such a change?
