Hmmm....well after some thought....

Someone help me out (i'm working from memory here), but 
aren't there changes between 2.0.x and the HEAD branch that
will break a Samba PDC install?  Domain SID issues maybe?

As one person pointed out to me, the pdc functionality 
in 2.0.x  is perfectly fine for some shops.  So then 
the issue here really becomes is backward compatibility 
with a 2.0 PDC in future releases (right now 2.1-prealpha).

These questions are becoming more and more pressing as 
more and more people are asking for a production release
(their boss doesn't allow alpha test code in production...
don't know why though ;) ).

What is the defining answer as to why someone should 
not run a Samba PDC based on the 2.0.x code branch?
If there is not one, then I'll be quiet.
