We have restructured the code in this way, with a smallish samba_kcc
script and modules in samba.kcc.*. There are unit tests for all the
modules, though they are far from comprehensive.

One unfortunate affect of this rearrangement is that `git blame` and
friends get confused and tend not to look back beyond the move.
Another is that it makes it hard to address one of Andreas's
complaints -- that of documentation strings being introduced in a
later commit than the function that they document. It is difficult to
push the docstring patches back across the rename barrier.;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/kcc-intersite-26
