OUCH!  That's a show-stopper.  Well, sort of...

...that sounds like the best approach to begin with.  For gods sake
we have create_token which works on NT4.  The additional advantage
of getting a fine logon session id would then require 2K or XP...
which isn't too bad.

If we require that stuff to work on NT4 from the beginning I fear we
will get stuck in all the workaround and licensing hogwash.

Other opinion anyone?
