it's probably okay if you do this for Samba 4 but for Samba 3 and
samba4wins we should already now agree on a common path for ldb
modules. We can do this for samba 3 and samba4wins by patching it
ourself but it would be bad if that path would change later.

Would my suggestion to use /usr/lib/ldb be what you are going to use
in the end, too? If this would change later all projects relying
on this module path and maybe putting their backends there would be
screwed and be forced to change this again.
