try using the "include = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%macro-substitution" 
system.  you will be able break up your system, even by things like 
NetBIOS name.

the application-based people could connect to the same samba server using 
a different NetBIOS name, and have a completely different configuration 
file (/usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.SAMBA-APPLIC1)
