Thanks for the help everyone.

It looks like the 0.9.11 tarball that I have in my cache is the last
ever published version. I may pull fumiyas' git repo in and publish a
branch/pull request/whatever for historical reason but it looks like
the project is no longer maintained because it's been superceded by
something better.

For me, I'm not using AD domains because I'm mostly not using
Windows. My network is OS X and Unix with some Samba to share printers
and make things that want very old style CIFS shares (media players,
etc) work. However, I do know LDAP so I was using smbldap-tools to
create a unified login for my users e.g. your "Windows password" was
also your email password and your DAV share password... I'll try out
the new hotness as some point to see what it's about.

Thank you again!
