This approach is less straight forward.  Therfore I still suggest to
handle this in the Samba version.  From this point on no vendor has any
extra work while providing Samba pre and rc packages.

Metze: I even don't care abaout 3.0.X.98pre for pre and 3.0.X.99rc for
rc releases.

The only intention is to have a straight forward solution.  And I'll
implement it as soon as we have a consensus.
