It seems to me that using ldb would only be reinventing the wheel. XML
is a well recognized standard, human readable and editable, easily
extendable for modules, and already contains the tree-like structure
that the smb.conf file should inherintly contain.

I wrote a quick DTD and smb.conf file using XML. It is by no means
complete, but it should prove my point of simplicity.
