I've definitely looked at Zentyal.  The work with developing a fully
integrated Samba solution into a distro like SME Server (or Zentyal) isn't
just making a service like Samba work, it's making it work within the API
and mechanisms that make the distro turnkey.  It's quite alot of work.
Zentyal is a good check on what works and doesn't, but it doesn't help me
in terms of quite alot of the other SME Server integration.  For example,
we run all of our services supervised with djb daemontools.  This means all
of the default Samba run scripts get disconneted and we write special run
scripts for Samba under daemontools.   This kind of thing just goes on and

I appreciate all of your good advice and patience.
