Samba4 and LDAP backend status

I've been working to have Samba4 pass all it's tests against the LDAP
I need to use a patched openldap. See
I've not had complete success, but between a full run, and an isolated
re-run of the ldap.py test, it seems to work. (one of the test is quite
literally racy, I need to cope with both response orders).
I'm also looking at a more secure way to handle talking to the LDAP
backend. The current hack of using anonymous connections is clearly not
the best :-).
I'm hoping to at some point move to a scheme using a fixed 'trust'
account and proxy authorization, if possible.
In the meantime, I'm thinking to make a Samba4 alpha5 release, as the
alpha4 release didn't have the backend working, and didn't allow
OpenChange to build against it.
