No, I don't think you are missing anything.

Just the s3 packaging stuff will need some path changes, but
this should be very easy.

Let me stress here that the combined tree will be very useful
in its own right even without the merged build, since it will
allow us to reconcile common parts of both sambas more easily. 

We will for instance be able to move for instance lib/tdb and
lib/talloc to the top level directory to eliminate the need to
sync these virtually identical folders between the two.
This way we would also have one only definitive source of these

Cheers - Michael
