I realise this is already in, but could we please have the default
being True?  It is correct that this is the no-change behaviour, but on
reflection we have made many other things bug the user to install
packages or explicitly disable the feature, and doing so would ensure
that more packages and more installs get to use this functionality.  

(Because folks doing the build are prompted).

Either way, the smb.conf manpage section also needs to be updated.
