Samba MSDFS and tree structure problem

Interesting, expecially in light of:

   NESTING AND EXPANDING DFS TREES

   Although each particular Dfs tree is limited to two levels of volumes,
   each volume can contain multiple levels of folders. Additionally, you
   can create a multi-leveled tree by nesting Dfs trees inside of each
   other. You do this by adding the root volume of one Dfs tree as a leaf
   volume in another Dfs. Creating a multi-level tree this way is

   transparent to users; they do not know when they have crossed from one
   Dfs tree to another.

This was found at

Does this mean that Microsoft will copy the functionality offered by this
patch or break it on their next client?  Both?
