Suppose that you have anonymous shares -- ones used as readonly software
If you wanted to log them you could have a
log file = %m-%U.log if you wanted to find out who was using the these
(That is, if smith uses the share from the machine aardvark, you'd end up
with a aardvark-smith.log file.)
On the other hand if you want just to analyze how much traffic the
shares are getting, you may prefer a log file = %m-%u.
This may also hold true for shares where you force user to something,
and want to track who wrote the new no-alcohol-at-the-staff-party
policy onto the company handbook share...
I can see possible situations with include files too, where you want to
keep the base
file simple, but include files based who is trying to do what.
'course I may be all wet too.
