We are in the same situation with large user/group/machine set needed to 
be ported to the new s4 world. The only solution i can see at the moment 
would be to dump the contents of the appropriate LDAP sections (it being 
users/group/machines/etc) into ldif(s) in a format acceptable by s4 and 
then add them using ldbadd (and possbly sync using ldbmodify later on).
Would it be a worthwhile to add "yet another net cmd" utility to allow 
importing stuff from existing LDAP infrastructure (maybe conceptually 
simmilar to existing vampire cmd)?
