No I really don't, I mean I know that's important but there is still a 
lot of important things to work on.
Now the team is working on a 4.0 release that merge current samba 3.5 
branches and samba4 alphas, it takes time and resources.

The 4.0 release will most probably won't have the multi domain forest 
and other stuff will be missing (so far we don't have sysvol 
replication), it really depends on how complicated it is and how people 
are motivated at it.

I have the feeling that for the moment our vision is more to have a 
correct support for simple setup (a couple of DCs with 1 domain), but 
it's only my own point of view.
