from an old and great user (for the size, of course) point of view, in 
some places are migrating form 2.x to 3.x, so, IMHO, the Samba4 likes as 
"too far" and a perhaps "too much speed change", so 3.5 sounds better 
path for great installations engaged in some migration (Windows--> 
SambaX or Samba 2.x--> Samba 3.x).
