I am not in anyway saying that Samba4 must use ol (thanks for the 
abbreviation) with mysql back-end. I've just described, what exactly I 
am trying to achieve, and how the current state of affairs could be
changed/improved to allow that.

The whole point is that if it possible to extend Samba4 for so 
ridiculous purposes ;), it will be much easier for Samba team will to 
work on the project, and for Samba users to deploy and run it.
