would you accept it if Marc and I would do manual testing and fix remaining 

This means upgrading from 4.6 to 4.7 with my patchset and check if it works 
Switching backends etc.

I do not feel very happy with the current code and giving named broad access 
to keytab and AD partitions.

Also when switching from bind_dlz to the internal DNS we should remove files 
which give the named group full access to AD.

Open selftest/wscript and uncomment line 235 and 236 and comment out line 239, 
then run 'make test'.

This would use the internal DNS server instead of faking DNS.
