If we replace our NT4 PDC with samba 3 PDC, then how do we make a change 
to the policy (NTConfig.pol)? If the NT4 PDC is gone, we can't edit it 
there. Samba docs talk about editreg tool, but it also says: "do not be 
surprised if this feature does not materialize". Has editreg materialized?

This is why I'm thinking we need NT4 BDC around, so that we can edit the 
policy, then move that new policy to samba 3 NETLOGON.
