I was trying to run something like "bin/samba_kcc -H private/sam.ldb
--readonly --debug" to see
what the output is - it wasn't working so I dig it further. I am currently
using two IDEs to make
light my way in code I have forgotten - PyDev and PyCharm. And they are
awesome - constantly
'pylint'-ing the code I am looking at (not to mention highlight for
selected var). So I am able to quickly
find small and big problems here and there. Surprisingly, there are a lot :)

Does kcc works properly now? It is hard for me to answer this - it should
be working much
properly that it was before the patch. But if it is working like totally
properly - I am not sure.
It seems to me that there is more fixes to be done so it runs without
errors for more that one DC in Site :)
I hope to be able to test it with more DCs and Sites.

recall, there were tests
when kcc code was ported to Python (just don't recall what the tests were)
