BAD IDEA, just tell people what to install.

Yes, I understand this, but better to start right in the first
place ;-)
If people cannot read your code, they cannot point out errors or
supply better ways of doing things, it falls on you and that way
usually leads to failure.

I wouldn't bother with 'go', I would stick with python, it must be
easier to link your python to our python in the 'samba' libs.

Unless you can provide me with python code for the 'go_samba4' blob, I
do not think I will bother, I like to see the code I am running, even
if I don't fully understand it ;-)
