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.
