My opinion is still that talloc, tevent and tdb should be standalone projects 
and shouldn't be a part of the samba tree.

This makes sure that we have packages release when we change something. We had 
several time the problem in the beta phase that I wasn't able to ship the beta 
cause ldb or tevent wasn't released in the version samba required.

It is also hard to backport patches if a patch changes a line in e.g. in 
talloc and 100 lines in the samba tree.
