I'm not able to properly review these patches this week, but I would
like to encourage you to make improvements like this.

The intersection of people who simultaneously

1. understand the underlying concepts,
2. are new Samba users, and
3. have the means to make improvements

is vanishingly small (i.e. it's you). We need you to write these
patches before Stockholm syndrome sets in and you internalise the
existing UI as a-priori correct.
