The change in libmapi would basically just be to replace the binding string 
(in libmapi/IMSProvider) where it uses ncacn_ip_tcp with something that uses 
ncacn_http. I'm not so familiar with samba, but you essentially need to 
implement ncacn_http, somewhere in librpc.

If you are interested in working on this, please coordinate with Jelmer
