Most probably you are true. But the next problem lies in the fact that 
"upgradeprovision" does get installed under <repo path>/bin since there 
exists a rule "bld.SAMBA_SCRIPT('upgradeprovision', 
pattern='upgradeprovision', installdir='.')" in "wscript_build" under 
"source4/scripting/bin". So people might call it from there and don't 
find "findprovisionusnranges". What to do here?
