Nobody said we wouldn't support it.  Just that all the bugs will probably
not be addresses in 2.2.1.  We don'y currently have AD and Kerberos
support but people are still using Samba.  I'm not saying this aren't
important.  But the fact is that 2.2.1 will fix several major bugs
and we can't delay it's release indefinitely until all issues are
addressed.  2.2.2 will include more bug fixes and so will 2.2.3, etc...

Make sense?
