I think it makes sense for at least parts ("daemon maintainance") of
 it to be added to such a binary aka samba-ctl, along with smbstatus and testparm.
Adding everything from net to samba-ctl may be a bit too much.

There are lots of difference between Windows and Linux, and I think
learning that "net" is called "samba-ctl" on Linux for people who are
migrating really isn't an issue.

Some things are going to break in the UI between 3 and 4 anyway; I'm not
sure this should be a big concern.
