Quick reading about mDNS (correct me if I'm wrong) this
would mean that you want smbd to listen on UDP port 5353.
With the events system in SAMBA_3_0 this will be easier than
it used to be, but I'm not certain this is a good idea.
Traditionally in Samba3 it was nmbd who was responsible for
the UDP-based services.
