No, currently it doesn't. I'm a bit unsure if we really want to make the
samba4 packages direct upgrades from samba, though (ie. calling them just
"samba" with a version number of 3.9.something), given that a downgrade would
be downright impossible... This is definitely your call, though; we could
probably adjust the packaging to match names more properly (giving direct
upgrades) if there's a desire for it.
