Well, it _serves_ files, so it is natural to expect it to be on
servers. But I do not know what exactly positions it as "for big
installations". Samba is found in set-top-boxes, on mobile devices (I
just seen it on n810) etc.

I am quite happy that samba does not provide that feature (I suspect
there might be some issue with sharing tcp ports). There is no need to
create many processes where one process can do everything. Think

Why not? Is it a technical issue or architectural? Sorry, I am not
familiar with the PA internals, so some details would be nice to
have... Actually, it was already mentioned that Rygel can run as
system service - so I assume that feature is already available? Or

That is not an argument as such, I am just showing where I come from.
The primary values, so to say:) Yes, I like the true and proven ways
of good old Unix, and consider it architecturally suspicious where
people ignore them without very serious reason (well, at least I feel
obliged to question the reasons and challenge them:).
