yes. me and paul ashton.
several people have been wanting nt domains for a severely long time.
i provided paul with stuff from which to produce a spec (published about
eight weeks ago. zero public reaction except from a one linus nordberg,
who sent a c-code implementation).
paul then spent about two to three weeks doing a reference implementation,
from whence his "welcome to the SAMBA domain" signature comes. we then
produced a white paper from this, and published that, two weeks ago.
again, zero public reaction.
i'm now nursing a headache and a cold (not sure what was caused by what,
but i think it involves a chocolate bar a few hours ago. the headache,
that is) from doing a re-implementation of the white paper.

yes, probably unofficially and unannounced, for a while.

well, it's not so much scrapped as stuffed. i tried to do too many
different things in one go without finishing the first one, and had too
large a break between each attempt to add each feature.

through the caller NetBIOS name. yes, this is documented, jason.
probably %m - see util.c::standard_sub_basic() and then hunt around for
where remote_machine is set up.
so, you want include = smb.conf.%m
sorry, i'm too tired to answer the rest.
