IIRC at the moment the only branch that supports PDC is the SAMBA_TNG
which was the old 2.1.0-prealpha branch. The only problem is, that LKCL
many changes to it in the last few weeks, and some ppl got problems
it (including myself :)

But, if I recall it correctly (correct me if I'm wrong) the current
(which is basicly the old 2.0.x branch) will get the "old" PDC code
soon. (i.e
someone is merging them)
