in SAMBA_TNG?  yes.  both schemas are _not_ what was originally planned.
jean-francois wrote a very good schema, and i broke it.  someone then sent
in a patch for 2.0.3-or-so, _just_ around the time when i was writing the
"password database api", and no - i didn't want it to go into 2.0.x, we're
not ready to finalise the schema.  they didn't send a patch in that
conformed to the new pwdb api.

so, we have a problem, there.  if anyone wants to fix it, they're most
welcome.  i'd recommend talking to luke howard about appropriate schemas,
and to make sure that the finalised schema is useful to provide
SAM-database-like data _and_ confirms to rfc2307 (may be 2037 :-).
