Michael, I like your plan.  My one request is that you do these  
improvements in master without backporting them to v3-4-test.  As was  
discussed in the "What should/shouldn't go into v3-4-test" samba- 
technical thread, I would classify your proposal as a large,  
potentially destabilizing change, which shouldn't go into a release  
branch.  To make 3.4 a solid release, v3-4-test should only have  
patches backported that fix bugs, and not patches that add new features.
