SWAT:  We need the new SWAT integrated with authentication, and the old
scripts.  Derrell assures me that is on his plans.  Also build
portability etc.

Testing:  I spent way to long on the last release because things like
the vampire code were just busted:  These need testing, and we need
automated windows testing to cover it between manual tests

Domain Joins:  Metze's new join work needs to be integrated, so we
always use the new join (we remove the bits that do a replication with
the join, and integrate it).  This should make it almost possible to add
the RPC-CRACKNAMES test in.

RPC:  If I run 'TEST_LDAP=yes make test', then the RPC-LSA test
segfaults, due to a timeout.  We should at least fix the timeout
segfault, if not the reason for the timeout.

jelmer: Perhaps you can chase this one down?

Heimdal:  Love has given me a PAC patch, and once we work on an
agreeable form for that, and the couple of other things in the diff, we
should almost be at 'drop heimdal tarball here' stage.

Release Notes:  We need them written for this release, and some things
cleaned up from the previous ones.

That's the aim.  It should work, I just need to set up the server-side
to make my PKCS#11 cards more than expensive keyrings :-)
