I'm thinking the same thing.

We should be thankful to Sernet, RedHat, Suse and others for employing 
Samba developers, and if and when our distro compiles a new package, it 
will have been because of the work of these fellows (guys & gals)

And, the time people like Rowland, Andrew and others (too many to name 
lest I forget one) spend helping endusers is another expense of time and 
money that can be attributed to Sernet, RedHat, Suse, etc.
