SWAT is simply the GUI.  Anything you can do from the command-line, you
will be able to do from a graphical window-like interface in SWAT.  Once
it's done of course. :-)

I believe it will be quite nice, so don't base your expectations/fears on
SWAT in previous versions of Samba.  Whether Samba4 meets your particular
needs or not is another question, but I can say we will definitely have a
nice, feature-rich admin GUI once SWAT is done.
