Hi David, before I okay your patch, can we clarify something. Are you
saying that if samba-tool is used with just '-H' then the local
hostname will be used ? If so, this is news to me and the help
typically says this:

  -H URL, --URL=URL     LDB URL for database or target server

There is no mention of '-H' by itself meaning 'localhost' anywhere, as
far as I can see.
