Didn't seem like that difficult of a question, but maybe it isn't geeky enough for some.  (Or perhaps the answer is "No" and people are too embarrassed to admit Samba can't do it.)

Hello Michael,

With open source projects, people involved are volunteering their time
and skills.
As such, people asking for help shouldn't really _demand_  for answers
(of course, if you want to demand anything, there are plenty of
companies giving Samba support - not free, I'm afraid).

Please handle it gently :). If Samba can't do it, you'll be told
upfront (no one will be embarassed).
