This is where you and i disagree on what's important.  I'm not 
saying you have to do it, but I do have a problem of keep us 
as developers promising something and never delivering.
**If** we can deliver this, then we have a smooth road for migrating
from NT 4.0 PDC's to Samba DC's.  This may also buy us time
in the requests for a Samba Win2K compatible DC.

Bottom line in my opinion is that we need to table some of the 
other stuff that may be more fun and get this done.  Otherwise,
it will never get done.

Oh and btw....i expect that there is a lot todo in HEAD anyways.
I'm not naive about this.

But it also takes people to finish off the feature and polish

cheers, jerry
