Tested against win2008, but we have some implementation is Samba 4 until it can transfer roles. I'll test it some more, my environment got busted after I reverted a snapshot.

Looks good! Two minor comments:
* cmd_fsmo.seize_role doesn't seem to be called anywhere, is it dead
* the help for --role seems to include too much newlines, if you use """
you shouldn't need the \n

Perhaps - but let's keep that separate of this patch - given the number
of net commands that seem to use the samdb, we should add a helper
function to get at a sam database from the command-line arguments (i.e.
a SamdbCommand class that subclasses Command?).
