We are a very long way from a 'final release', whatever that could be
termed.  The goals I've suggested have tended to be 'what could we get
away with for a first alpha'.  These didn't include GPO, simply because
I wanted to list things I knew enough about to see a path to finishing.

Separately to that, metze has a list of goals he is working on (I'm sure
he can remind me of the URL).

GPO support remains one of our longer term goals:  everybody tells us it
'it not too hard', but we haven't spent any time on it yet.

File replication is likewise in that category, but we can probably get
away with using CIFS for the pull side.
