Exactly. Net was chosen to somehow emulate the 'net' command in
windows, but as the syntax was never even comparable, it didn't even
succeed at this goal. I also think that the 'net4' name projects an
assumption that we will never have anything beyond Samba 4.0, or that
the project will never merge back into one release.
