That is one from ancient history, as far as I am aware, the code was 
removed from Samba a long time ago, so whilst I am not saying you 
couldn't get it work with a Samba supported version, you would probably 
would be on your own and the Samba code has moved on since 3.0.x (which 
is when I believe it was removed).
