[SAMBA4] Tech preview update

Just another of my updates on where I think we are towards the tech

With major developers travelling, development has slowed down a lot.
I've put in some fixes for some of the migration cases we want to show
off, but I need to do some more work on the robustness of the Samba3
upgrade.  In particular, the choice of a realm, and the need to perform
a 'self join' after the upgrade.

The biggest thing we need is release notes.  These need to convey the
amount of work we have done, but also the things that are simply not
expected to work yet, and the pre-alpha state.    (The last thing we
want is some production network running this, then screaming if we break
everything in an update).

The other outstanding things for me are ACLs on the registry and SWAT.
There is a debian upgrade bug out there (need for realm specification),
but otherwise, I think we are almost ready to go...
