No, at this moment s3 stores its smb.conf in lib/ where s4
stores it in etc/. But it should not really hurt, because we
ignore the respective unknown parameters. And I'm not aware
of any real conflicts where existing parameters have
different meaning. If that's the case, it needs fixing.

The plan is to move the s3 smb.conf default location to etc/
as well at some point.

When pdb_ads was initially written, it was possible to set
the password with smbpasswd. Something has changed in the
meantime, s4 right now rejects what pdb_ads sends it. I'll
fix that soon.

This and the idmapping are code changes that need to be
done. I'm still investigating how to properly do that.
idmapping is undergoing considerable changes right now.
