We might be able to do this by just getting it from the samba 4 
repository...see below

I was thinking that we could have some way of flagging individual tests as 
to whether they would be for a samba3 run or not.  The default would be to 
say 'no', and one by one we can allow the tests for samba3 runs.

If you think I'm smoking something, say so :-) 

I just think trying to periodicaly pull over samba4 torture code into 
samba3 will be a bigger headache than this.
