Enhancement to Samba

How about allowing %h to be used as a value in 'netbios name'? We have
two instances of Samba running on a Sun server (one on the primary
interface and the second on the same interface using IP aliasing). We
do this to have 'security = user' and 'security = share' on the same
samba servers. As nmbd runs twice, it tries to register the same
netbios name twice, which gives errors. So, I'd do:
	netbios name = %h
for one smb.conf and
	netbios name = %h-v1
for the second.
