It's fine by me.  I would prefer we don't end up needing to maintain two
build systems for the source3/ code, so I hope that Samba3 adopts the
waf build when Kai finishes it.  Either way I guess it's not much
different to the existing 's3/s4/merged' challenge.  

In the medium term I'm a little concerned that we may loose merged
build, and not find someone with the time to re-add it, or loose it as a
goal.  But I won't let these fears get in the way.
