We certainly need to figure out what the direction is here.  I like the
new LDB browser, but something does seem a little out of proportion

It re-runs the entire testsuite against an LDAP backend.  To enable it
by default, we would need a way to shut down smbd, re-provision and then
run a limited number of tests.

We are still rather tightly coupled to the version of Heimdal we choose
(as I find out whenever I update).  We need to use less internal
interfaces still.

But I really want to get to this point.

Just like any release, a set of notes on what changed, etc.  In
particular, just some of the language in the previous ones need a bit
more work, I think.
