So we have various fix in crackaname, fixes in some date format 
handling, fix in the modification time of the CN=Aggregate in the schema 
partition, improvement in the schema reloading (reduction of reloads) 
all this leads to exchange 2010 being able to be installed in ~30 
minutes on top of Samba 4.0. Exchange 2010 then won't work as some bits 
are missing but it shouldn't be too complicated to have them (in 4.1 ?)
