BAD IDEA, just tell people what to install.

Yes, I understand this, but better to start right in the first
If people cannot read your code, they cannot point out errors or
supply better ways of doing things, it falls on you and that way
usually leads to failure.

I wouldn't bother with 'go', I would stick with python, it must be
easier to link your python to our python in the 'samba' libs.

Unless you can provide me with python code for the 'go_samba4' blob, I
do not think I will bother, I like to see the code I am running, even
if I don't fully understand it ;-)
