I tried to push your patches from;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/join but
s4:join python code - "msDS-keyVersionNumber" does not exist on Win2k;a=commitdiff;h=a63e5fe8ea878b1c6a29b51da7d510ba08e823b6 does not pass 'make test', so I've dropped it again. 

When you get a chance to sort that out, I look forward to tidying this
up for our future users. 

In the meantime, sadly the easiest and most reliable way to migrate off
windows 2000 is to do via windows 2003.
