That's why I stated below that I will remove it when it gets removed in the
Samba development tree upstream.
I will handle the correct deinstallation of samba-swat when it gets removed
but thanks for the idea with handling it in samba-common.
I'm sure it will take some time till it gets removed.
The time has come. SWAT has been removed from Samba and I will remove it in
F19 and newer now.
