GECOS expansion


NetBSD's Samba package contains a lot patches (which make updating the
package very hard) to support GECOS expansion(*).

I personally think that this is a really useless feature and it should
be removed because it only creates compatibility problems.

What do other people think about this?

        Kind regards

(*) See description of "&" in the gecos field in passwd(5).
