It's been an interesting and busy time since SambaXP, and much more
seems to be happening now than when I first posted this thread, but I
still think we should branch for 4.2.

CTDB is now waf-built, and the AD DC now has winbindd, the new messaging
system in in source3 and lots of other good things have been merged.
Samba 4.2 will be a release to be proud of, and we should start the road
of getting it to our users.
