In terms of the Samba4 page, we need to rework it into a general
introduction on Samba 4.0 as an AD DC.  The information on the 'samba4'
development project/branch needs to move elsewhere, as goals planned or
achieved for that project, which is now complete (as we have merged to
Samba 4.0). 

When we get the page into shape, I'll rename it to 'Samba AD DC',
leaving Samba4 as a redirect.   (I'm trying to avoid using the name
Samba4, as it is confusing now that we have a full Samba release called
Samba 4.0, which does much more than what the 'samba4' project aimed

There is a lot of work to do on the wiki, and I do thank those who have
the time and patience to put into it.
