Andrew Kroeger,

if you like to continue to work on the passwords in s4: I had a patch to 
samba4.blackbox.passwords which I never applied since it seemed to fail 
on certain circumstances. If you want to work on it: I'd post it here or 
give you the URL in my personal public GIT repo.

The next step afterwards would be to enhance the LDB module 
"password_hash" or write a new one which contains basically the content 
of "samdb_set_password". So this method has to be "cleared" but possibly 
the interface should remain the same - if not possible the five or six 
calls in the code must be adapted.

Please let me know about your thoughts.
