Unless there's an easy way to do that, I'll probably just put a
comment in that says requires Samba 4.3 or 4.2 with these patches.
Sites that are experiencing will hopefully be able to compile up
if they need it. Without Samba we wouldn't be able to authenticate
to AD at all, so I'm very grateful for all that you guys do!

I didn't quite get the bit about bugzilla reports, but on second
reading it looks like that's for making code into a stable
release not just into the next version, which makes sense now.
