It's not ready yet, but the plan at least I am following
right now has technically changed a little: Right now I'm
writing a pdb_ads module. The configuration of a samba3/4 DC
would be pretty easy: You "just" set up a normal Samba3 DC,
but instead of saying "passdb backend = ldapsam" you say
"passdb backend = ads". You then provision your Samba4 DC
and configure the "server services" parameter so that it
only does (C)LDAP and Kerberos (I'm sure I forgot
something), and you should be pretty much done.

smbpasswd3 already seems to work fine for me, as do a lot of
"net sam" subcommands. This is at least to me a lot of fun,
and might be a quick intermediate step on our way to a full
s4 based AD DC and a proper file/printserver on the same box :-)

Feel free to join #samba-technical on and
beat me about what does not yet work with pdb_ads!
