Samba4: wide links and unix extensions

All my home directories are symlinks from a share to the real data.

I need wide links for windows clients to follow symlinks. To do that, I 
must have
wide links = Yes
unix extensions = No

This means that if I mount the share on a Linux clients, none of the 
acl's are correct.

I've seen bugzillas that were resolved on the same topic, but from 2010 
and not with S4.

Can we/do we plan to be able to have both server and client working side 
to enable:
wide links = Yes
unix extensions = Yes

that would be great.
