That's the beauty of Open Source.  Nothing is stopping you.  And if a decent
go is made of it, IBM may contribute and use it to replace Netserver and
then you got them helping out the Samba crew also (or as it sounds, Samba
helping them :P).

The odd thing is, is that IBM hasn't looked at teh Samba code to see how
they are handling the protocol and adapted their software accordingly.
