I don't think it's a magic touch thing at all - when I first started
playing with samba 3.0.0 and ldap, I knew I was in over my head and
spent time learning ldap and getting to the point where I could populate
it, use it, repair it and function with it before I went back to samba
to integrate it. The problem is trying to get the whole enchilada in one
bite leads to a lot of indigestion. I took smaller bites.
