There's been some discussion of this on the samba-technical list in
the past.  There's a script that has been worked on to help with this
sort of migration, but I don't think it has been checked in to the
repository yet.  It was called something like myldap-pub.py, but was
going to be given a proper name before being checked in.

I've copied my reply to the samba-technical list.
