The experimental feature in 3.3 is designed to do exactly
what Samba 4 does in this area right now. If you find any
deficiencies, please file bugs against it. The fact that
this is a little tested and security-sensitive feature is
the reason that we marked this as experimental. You can help
by testing it :-)
