I hope it gets an integral TCP/IP stack too. It's needed in order to communicate with the clients :)
Seriously, does Samba *really* need to rewrite custom versions of everything? I used to run an enterprise network in which Windows clients had to coexist with Linux and MacOS clients. Most corporate networks already have their own dns, dhcp, ldap and kerberos services and all they need the Samba DC to integrate with them--not replace them.
