Password history checks

a client recently asked us about the password policy settings they could
enforce in their Samba 4 AD domain.

It *seems* that one of their wishes can't be fulfilled right now: the
password history check[1].  This is supposed to prevent users from
reusing the same passwords. Samba 4 is able to store up to 24 previous
passwords, but it doesn't seem to check for password reuse when a user
changes his credentials.

If this feature is indeed not implemented, maybe it is on someone's roadmap?
