No, that's a really good idea and thanks for bringing it up.
I used to do a lot of Samba marketing, but have been working
more on code recently. If anyone would like to help take on
the job I'd be very happy to work with them.

For the record I believe we are still faster than Win2003
(although we don't have production AD server support yet,
we are a very happy and integrated AD client :-).
