That file is *really* out of date, and most of the comments
(particularly regarding defaults) are *way* out of date.

Basically, Samba comes fully optimized for almost everything straight
out of the box - the only stuff worth 'adding' is where local knowledge
(this share is read only on client and server, so we can give fake
oplocks) assists you.

'Tweaking' your Samba server will generally slow you down...
