[Samba] Samba ove IPX

I would like to add my wish for IPX as a supported protocol for Samba.

My case is:
We use a number of CNC tool machines whose host is pure DOS based.
Don't be surprised that DOS is still running somewhere, it works fine 
for real-time systems, unlike all of the Windows stuff.
In order for these hosts to access LAN shared drives, IPX is preferable 
to TCP/IP because of its lower memory consumption.

Is there any plan for Samba over IPX ?

Thanks in advance,
Maurizio Manfredini
