I'm pretty sure the Samba team isn't too happy to open too much of the
Samba code to LGPL. We might need to figure out a way to interact wit
this stuff without linking to it.

I guess the same licensing problems arise here. Plus, I have no clue
what that endpoint mapper is. I guess the correct place to ask about
that stuff is #samba-technical on freenode or the samba-technical
mailing list.
