yes - that and being part of something bigger than they are.
... trouble with that is that both Wine and Samba are small
parts of a much larger picture that not many people understand
i've endeavoured to give you a glimpse of that picture.

it is not my intent to annoy.
i spent nearly four years working on samba: it _was_ fun
(up until 2000), and there was enough incentive in the work i
was doing for security companies (ISS) and other interested
parties (people who needed samba to be a PDC) to employ me
to continue to research the area i was interested in.
that time is now over: so i am therefore focussing on other
areas where there may be interest in funding such development.
i thank you for your time: when i have enough spare time and money
or if someone comes forward to provide sponsorship i will provide
you with all the patches in the world.
