I think u should add dns configuration into it as well and u need to
communicate with the samba4 team and the openchange team to get more
information on it as there are scripts already design to do these
configuration maybe you can link your scripts to the scripts already
provided but to get a details analysis of it u need to communicate with he 
samba4 team and openchange team. I think what u r trying to do is great.
Furthermore when I run make I am getting an error pyuic4: Command not found
make: *** [] Error 127 and that on ubuntu 9.10
