I gather there is no relationship to the Heimdal/Samba API's for the  
same functions.  (I have not tried the Heimdal ones.)

I'm not saying there needs to be a direct relationship.  Where I get  
the most bent is when things are *almost* the same.  Then you waste a  
lot of time trying to make them the same, and tripping on the  
unanticipated differences.
