The code works and passes basic steps.  Some other developers
have expressed interest in it as well.

There's a screen shot here:

The next step is easy.  More code review :-)  I'm hoping
mingwang and I can work on this some next week.

Longer term, we (Samba) have to come to an agreement about
how this could be integrated.  Things like do we have
an Autoconf check for -lelektra and what do we do if it
is not there.  How (and to what degree) do we support
legacy systems that want to continue to the the smb.conf
text file.  This is a pretty big shift for us.  And although
everyone agrees that we must have programmatic access
to out configuration data from within Samba, we have to
chart the course to get from where we are today to where
we want to be 6 months down the road.




cheers, jerry
