Sorry, but NACK!

Just because you have got MIT kerberos working with a Samba AD DC (and
great respect to you for doing so) isn't a good enough reason to bump
the version up to 5. If Heimdal was removed at the same time perhaps,
but, from my understanding, this cannot be done yet.

I also think that more warning needs to be given before such a big jump
