For now Samba3 as a PDC cannot replicate or feed any replication request
from BDC, for this to work we need a complete knowledge of the
replication process with all the informations contained in the deltas.
but also modifying smbd in a way it can manage and maintain a db of all
modifications done on the domain.

Concerning the replication process i should have written some kind of
documentation but i still did not take time to do it.
