Ok, thanks a lot !

Unfortunately, it will be difficult, as multiples OUs can have the same 
name, but be located in differents DNs. So the complete dn is needed for 
all ou operations. Worse, the base domain dn is a valid place for users, 

Initially I thought about something like

samba-tool move <user_name|group_name> <new_ou_dn>
                               <old_dn> <new_dn>

It will not be a real simplification, but may be helpful for scripting, 
as only the short names are needed for users and groups.
