[Samba] Samba 3 with OpenLDAP multimaster or Fedora-DS

I'd like to know if any of you have ever implemented Samba 3 with
OpenLDAP multimaster (using syncrepl, maybe) or Fedora-DS. The basic
idea would be:

- WAN link dies, the remote office's BDC would promote itself to PDC
(using some kind of monitoring script), and will start accepting
changes to the user base. Also, some change to the local WINS server
would be necessary.
- WAN link returns, the changes are replicated back to the original
PDC, and the WAN's PDC is demoted to BDC again, and changes again the
WINS database.

From what i've read, NT4 seems to do this "automagically", and i'm
having some complaints about that.

What do you guys think?
