Yes. We seem to converge on this. At least my commit had one benefit:
we finally discussed that..:-) (I know you're probably busy as hell

I'll revert that commit ASAP (it was made inn one single commit to
make this easier...).

IIRC, last fixes were made by Jeremy, but this is certainly somethign
interesting to discuss at SambaXP.

...pondered by Mathieu precisions about a branch based on 3.4, maybe.
