Someone higher than myself will have to answer this.
I can only tell you as far as what plans are for 2.2.0.

We seriously hope to have this out in the next few 
months.  Would love to have it out by mid August.
I can't make that call though.  Maybe looking 
into September.

What will be in 2.2.0?

  - rewritten locking semantics
  - TDB support for various internals databases
  - merged rpcclient from TNG
  - Support for Windows NT point and print 
    features (automatic print driver install)
  - consolidation of printer driver management
    methods for Windows 95/98 and NT
  - support for storing accounts in LDAP (this one
    is the sketchiest right now)

Probably some other things I have forgotten, but the 
above list is a good starting point.
