If I were a coder, I'd not be interested in anything that didn't 
interest me. When you can work on reverse engineering smb3, rfc2307 must 
seem mundane. Development appears to be at an all time low and anyway, 
who are we to dictate what volunteer and hobbyist coders spend their 
time upon? It is up to us to work around what we already have, not to 
ask for irrelevancies. The DC works with Windows. We should not 
pressurise by insisting any aspect of Unix work too, especially when we 
have perfectly viable methods ourselves to do so.

Please can we have rfc2307, sysvol replication and those FS something 
rôle things working on DCs?
