Before doing that again, please consider putting in
talloc_tos() into S4 or just not merge the pieces of code in
S3 that currently use it.

I am 100% with you, but at this point we have different
coding conventions. And to get a working product out there
as quickly as possible, we need to just live with the fact
that we have two separate code bases. Merging stuff is hard,
arduous work that can proceed independently of actual
release schedules given that we have cooperating daemons
right now.
