No, the server_id in source3 and source4 represent exactly the same
concept, as is to be expected as they were originally derived from each
other.  Furthermore, the notify code relies on server_id, and the notify
ndr functions are also in duplicate (the Samba3 notify.idl is a
superset), so the least disruptive course of action is to bring these
structures in common.

Furthermore, interprocess messaging will be a very important part of any
future combined Samba 4.0.

Perhaps there is technical issue with the merged structure I'm not aware

As to the messaging functions, I will investigate creating a common
messaging system, but here a rename seems likely in the short term.
