In my opinion this is a separate discussion from the 2.1.2 server 
release or even a release of the other samples (which to a large extent 
is also independent of a server 2.1.2 release).

I'd recommend starting a new thread to see if there is any interest in 
releasing Daytrader for 2.1 or whatever.
