I do not think that the next Samba release (whatever number it will have)
will be based purely on waf, most probably the fileserver part (namely 
will still have an autoconf based build available and some people will
still use that instead of waf.

So if we want more exposure of TDB2 on systems around the world,
we'll need to have TDB2 in the autoconf build.
