Fair enough.  I'm only a recent list joiner, otherwise I would have
been vocal at the time.  Server-side controls that force-override
foreign client setup are pretty important to how we work (not just for
Samba, but all of our infrastructure).  I long for an environment
where I control all of the connecting devices.

Will do.  Thanks, Jeremy.
