They make samba properly deal with .AppleDouble folders created by
the netatalk package when shares are made accessible for Macs.

When you move, copy or rename a file through Samba, the
corresponding file in .AppleDouble folder is also
moved/copied/renamed (this file represents the resource fork of the
Mac file).
