Loading users into a Samba AD DC using LDIF?

Hi Folks,

In testing user creation with samba-tool, I found it takes around ten
minutes to create 10,000 users. This was with a VM but with real
hardware we might only expect a small factor of improvement.

Is there a way to use LDIF to load large numbers of users and groups
into Samba as an AD controller?

Of course, that might not be faster, but I am hoping.
