As I understand it, the outstanding issues are:
 - you still have to run samba_upgradedns because while I change the
join code to create a dns.keytab, I forgot to create the matching
account in AD (ouch!)
 - any general replication issues

On general replication, I've been trying to solve the 'segfault if a
dcerpc bind times out doing krb5' issue.  This long-painful issue is
proving even more difficult than I imagined to sort out.
