You were asking for the wiki page with the documentation - this is it. 
How is it outdated?

Did you install Samba 4 according to the HOWTO?What are you running

The ldb python module is written in C - the file is the right 
one. However, you shouldn't have to provide a PYTHONPATH - Samba's 
binaries should be doing that for you.

Samba 4's UI is still changing, so the tools that you used previously 
may indeed have changed now or have a new name. I don't see how a 
description of a particular tool would have helped here, what's the tool 
you're trying to use?
