Development of this feature continues apace, and they should be in
'Samba master' before the end of this year, hopefully in November.

All Samba users are encouraged to, in testing enviornments, take our
'git master' and later our pre-releases to test out new features.  Real-world feedback is always a useful thing, and any issues found or just poor ergonomics can be discussed here and logged in our bugzilla.

That would be the best thing that can be done for these features at
this time.
