What is the (eventual) upgrade path from samba3 to samba4 going to look
like?  I would like to see samba4 packages in experimental at some point,
but I'm not really happy with the idea of renamed packages; it seems to me
this will just make it more difficult for us to support upgrades from these
packages once samba4 is released.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
