Thanks for your feedbacks. I initially picked the samba4 prefix because
there's already some attributes/object classes using that prefix like
samba4top and samba4rdn. I agree that we should try to reuse Samba3
schema if possible, but there seems to be far fewer attribute type &
object class definitions in Samba3 schema than those in AD schema.
So let me change the mapping table with Samba3 schema as many as
possible, then we'll review it again. Thanks!
