First of all, thanks for writing the script!

As far as licensing goes, here's how ms_schema.py evolved

Was originally minschema_wspp,
Which in turn was derived from Samba 4's minschema.js and minschema.py
(there's a mail that notes this, but I can't seem to find it)

So the same license (GPL3+, I guess) applies to ms_schema.py as
originally applied to those files.

So yes, a GPL3+ disclaimer is okay with me on your script. But please
do check with the Samba Team too.
