But trust-relations will require a rewritten user-layer, as the following 
is not neccesarry true in an NT environment:
Anders\NTDOMAIN1 = Anders\NTDOMAIN2, which is the current implementation 
in Samba TNG.

                 There is a second sense of migration: changing
                 over to a Samba from an NT domain.  In this model,
                 one extracts information from the NT or Win2k 
                 domain or domains, then moves a community of
                 users to a Samba server, dropping the NT PDC/BDC/
                 new-DC-thingie from service.

                 This only requires PDC functionality, but
                 it can often require trust relationships. These
                 allow other domains to stay NT-based, either
                 temporarily or because their politics requires it.

                 It's easier than trying to run in parallel,
                 but does have a "everything is down for migration" 
                 period in the plan.
