Sadly, windows expects the LDAP server on the LDAP port to be AD-style.
So, while I hope to have a mode whereby Samba can 'back' onto another
LDAP server, it can't be on the LDAP ports of the Samba DC's primary IP.
(It could be bound to an alias).

One possibility I've been hoping might work is an NT4 mode, backed onto
an LDAP database in Samba3 format, and only providing Samba3 network
services.  We have some bits of the puzzle, but this is still an area in
which we need to do a lot of work.
