I'm finally getting aorund to getting my cell set back up (mostly for
playing around), and I have something new in the mix that I didn't
have last time: Windows clients.  What is considered best practice for
dealing with Windows profiles and OpenAFS? I see the following

(1) Make all the profiles local, users have to copy things to AFS by hand
(2) Make profiles local (or roaming using MSFT infrastructure) and
redirect folders such as My Documents/Music/etc to \\AFS UNC path
(3) Store the roaming profile data in AFS directly.

What's the Right Way(tm) to do it?
