No, we don't want to use older Samba versions against newer LDB
versions.  The reason we bumped the version to 1.3 and 1.4 was to allow
a release stream without the major changes brought by the GUID index
work and the key-value layer.  

These are maintained in the v4-7-test and v4-8-test branch

However see my other mail, the experience of the past two years has
shown that the Samba/LDB interactions are much, much more complex than
the current release plan ever imagined.
