Yes, I know it has.  My point was that I've been working with Samba for
quite some time, so this is not all new to me.  I've also been contributing
to the SME Server project on this front for quite awhile and did the work
to deploy winbindd and NT4 dom server roles on SME Server.

We're making good headway on deploying Samba 4 on SME Server, but some of
this basic posix auth is a bit confusing.  The trick is writing an API to
interact with Samba 4 and deploy a config on SME Server that just works.
We don't want everyone who picks up SME Server to have to come over here
and ask the same questions I am.
