Thank you very much, John, for your reply.  You're right... I was
reading the wrong book for insights into my upgrade plan.  Thanks for
pointing me to the right book.

My question about BDC was not whether 2.2.x could be used as a BDC, but
rather, if I should expect any problems in using 3.x as a BDC for a
2.2.5 PDC (which I'm still unsure of, but I'll drop it in hopes of
finding an answer in the Samba-3 by Example book).  Perhaps I could have
written that more clearly in the first instance.  Apologies for creating
the confusion there.
