Samba 5.0 should be python3 only IMHO. It's insane to
try and support two completely different and utterly
incompatible scripting languages in one tree (only half
joking here :-). Might as well just re-write in perl
(triggering Rowland here :-).

But whether 5.0 should be the *next* relelase, rather
than 4.10 is another question I think.
