Yes, the VMware guys make good use of Samba like that.  They are very
supportive of the Samba Team - VMware provides us with licences, which
makes debugging *so* much easier.  They also seem to be pretty good with
keeping up with the GPL obligations - one of the few companies I've seen
that actually includes the 'written offer' when not bundling sources.
