I spoke with Jeremy, and we wouldn't want Samba's support for equally
old/dead protocols to stand in the way of the kernel here.  We both
agree that we can sort this out in userspace well enough (and would have
to anyway, as a there is a large deployed set of servers with this
behaviour already). 

Thank you very much to those who took the time to loop us in for giving
Samba a chance to express a view here.
