He did send the diff to the IDL file, which I've just applied. 

However, I'm not too keen on putting in the winexe patch (at least not
in the current state.. I think linking a Windows binary into Samba is a
very very bad idea. 

Also, there are also other minor issues:

 * Code style
 * Use of // for comments
 * Use of manually written prototypes in the C files
 * Use of direct headers (<termios.h>, etc) instead of <system/xx.h>
 * CamelCasing
 * The Windows code should (imho) go in some different place
 * Even /if/ we did think including a .exe in Samba was ok, 'winexe'
should be made optional because we don't want to require people to
install MSVC in order to build Samba.
