Migrating from Apple OpenDirectory?

In case you've forgotten, I'm trying to get some users out of Open
Directory into Samba4 for authentication purposes.

OK, I had some trouble with the stash file from the OS X box, but I
now have a dump file in the Heimdal dump format, so I can get at the
arcfour-hmac-md5 keys.  Do I just shove those into the unicodePwd

What about the other keys?  There are two des-hmac-crc (type 1) keys
and a 3des-hmac-sha1 (type 16) key for each principal too.  Should I
just ignore those?
