Alex, as far as I am aware, you are the first person to mention using a 
port with the 'dns forwarder' parameter, so it is hardly in our interest 
to do what you are asking. There just isn't the demand and developer 
time is limited, there are other far more pressing problems ahead of yours.

Did you miss this: https://bugzilla.samba.org/

If you want to use 000_saturn7 at mail.ru for your email address, I will 
even send you the mail to get a bugzilla account.
