No John.  What Jeffery is saying is that we have not finished updating the 
LDAP docs for the new schema, etc...  Which is true.

No really true.  It's just been replaced by idmap stuff.

Jeffery, if you define the idmap uid/gid parameters in smb.conf, you 
should get non-unix account support by default.  However, this code
is very new and should be taken with a grain of salt initially.
Please provide feedback via the mailing list or by filing bugs @ 
https://bugzilla.samba.org/.  Thanks.
