I agree in general.  We should avoid separate work as much
as possible.

The problem here is that (1) release of the localization
added versions tend to be late, sometimes in monthes.  (2)
Source archive of them are often found only FTP site on
localization is working on, not on main site of them.  The
similar situation ocurrs on PHP3, which stuck with me.

At this moment, both versions of samba are the same, so if
no one objects, I'm willing to back out japanese/samba and
update net/samba with it.
