If it's any different from Samba 3, there will be one hell of a to do
with all previously installed bases. Just imagine ...

As far as I'm concerned, if Samba suddenly stops working with the
site-wide LDAP database that I already use for umpteen other site-wide
services, then Samba rots out, not the other services (pam Unix and gdm
authentication and login, e-mail, printer quota, etc.)
