[Pkg-samba-maint] Bug#476104: samba: Should not set "socket options" by default

Package: samba
Version: 3.2.0~pre2-1
Severity: normal

This comes from a remark by John Terpstra at SambaXP: we are setting 
"socket options = TCP_NODELAY" for ages.

This is indeed the default value and adding such option is useless and
confusing to users: the simpler the configuration file, the better.

Now that we have ucf support, we should drop this in the default smb.conf

Steve, any comment about that move towards a simpler default smb.conf file?
